Food Waste Solutions Summit

November 14, 2019 – 9:00AM-4:00PM
UNCA Reuter Center – 1 University Heights, Asheville NC 28804

The Food Waste Solutions Summit is a regional gathering to disrupt food waste issues facing our communities, expand our networks, and inspire dynamic solutions. This 2nd summit builds on the success and momentum of the inaugural 2017 event. This year’s event will bring together local businesses, organizations and university  leaders to expand cross-sector conversations and deepen collaborations that have emerged over the past two years.  The 2017 event attracted over 150 attendees from dozens of community organizations, businesses and government agencies. That event launched a collaborative network in and around Buncombe County to address food waste recovery issues including:

  • Support for edible food waste collection and redistribution
  • Increased landfill diversion tactics
  • Innovative enterprise development 
  • Development of community and municipal level compost initiatives 

Resulting development and application of food waste reduction strategies will allow the Asheville area to serve as a model for other communities across North Carolina striving to reduce food waste.
