reducing food waste and leveraging it as a resource to benefit central ohio
The Central Ohio Food Waste Initiative aims to reduce food waste and leverage it as a resource to benefit our region. Consistent with the food waste hierarchy, the Initiative will have a holistic approach by focusing on preventing food waste, recovering edible food waste for redistribution, and recycling food waste through agriculture uses such as composting. Lead by SWACO, the Initiative will engage experienced and committed stakeholders to develop a comprehensive action plan. The plan will lead to a shared approach for investment and support for new services, policies, infrastructure, as well as collective messaging and outreach to promote participation.
