New York City businesses produce more than 650,000 tons of food scraps annually. Yet food scraps aren’t garbage—instead of wasting them, they could be used to feed people and animals, nourish soul, grow healthy food and create energy. Businesses, investors and policy makers are eager to reduce their food waste footprint. By pairing an expo-style event with workshops, digital content and live demonstrations, the NYC Food Waste Fair will provide critical resources.

Learn about how you can build a food waste prevention plan from scratch or take existing programs to the next level. The fair’s exhibit hall will showcase vendors offering food waste prevention, recovery and recycling services. Workshops with city government officials will show you how to comply with laws and regulations, and you'll receive tips from experts on how to achieve tangible, cost-effective results.
