#FoodWaste / Monday, November 20
Can circular economies end #foodwaste?
At coFood Vancouver, we’re searching for ways to prevent waste throughout the life cycle of food. Whether waste comes from single-use packaging, or food that doesn’t get eaten, we believe the best solutions come from collaboration.
We invite you to our next long table dinner with presenters who have ingenious ways to close the loop on food waste. Sara Ross will teach us about collaborative eating at The Beehive, from food production and picking to preparation and preservation. Jennae Gedeon will demonstrate Eco Eats, the Vancouver-based app that helps people save food and money.
Monday, November 20 / 6:30–9:30 p.m.
The Artiste / 2050 Scotia Street
Buzz 160 / Unit 440
We are always growing our circle of coFood friends! Let us notify you about future coFood events.
beyond the business card
In the spirit of getting to know one another, we’ll go beyond the business card by sharing everyone’s contact information after the event. We hope this will allow more freedom for people to explore genuine connections in the time we have together at coFood events, and beyond.
