Food Waste vs Food Safety: A Balancing Act

Food Waste vs Food Safety: A Balancing Act

About this Webinar:

The United States is, unfortunately, the leader of food waste in the world. According to the USDA, they estimate that about 133 billion pounds of food was wasted in 2010 at the retail and consumer level.

This webinar examines the problem of food waste and how we as consumers can safely reduce the amount of food waste in our homes. One of the biggest contributors to food waste is produce and as such, this webinar provides insight into how to properly handle, store and increase the shelf life of food in the home.

Learning Objectives:

The participants will be able to:

  • Describe the problem of food waste
  • Explain the steps consumers can take to reduce food waste, while still maintaining food safety
  • Apply best practices for consumer handling of fresh produce for safety, quality, and increased shelf life

Presenter

FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event. If this is an Extension Foundation hosted event - we will update this calendar listing with a link to the recording usually within 48 hours. Keep in mind, many of the offerings found here in Connect Extension are brought to you by your colleagues across the system. While we encourage them to update their listings with recordings, it is entirely up to them.

How do I know if it is an Extension-hosted event?

eXtension posts publicly our events to two calendars - the Extension Foundation Member Calendar and the Opportunities for Cooperative Extension Calendar.  All other events coming from across Cooperative Extension are posted to the Learn Calendar or to one of the regional calendars. All calendars populate to the same main calendar on Connect Extension. To tell the difference between what events are posted to what calendars easily, you'll see the name of the calendar posted above the title of the event if you scroll to the top.

What if I have trouble accessing this webinar?

Please contact the author of this calendar event. The individual that posted this event will have their username automatically listed at the bottom of the body of their post, right above the social media buttons. When you hover over that name, you are able to send them a private message.
