Q&A with author Daniel N. Warshawsky of his book “Food Waste, Food Insecurity, and the Globalization of Food Banks”

January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

So many of us are passionate about finding ways to reduce food waste so we’re thrilled to be hosting author and professor Daniel N. Warshawsky for a virtual discussion of his new book “Food Waste, Food Insecurity, and the Globalization of Food Banks”.

Please register here.

About the book:

Food banks—warehouses that collect and systematize surplus food—have expanded into one of the largest mechanisms to redistribute food waste. From their origins in North America in the 1960s, food banks provide food to communities in approximately one hundred countries on six continents. This book analyzes the development of food banks across the world and the limits of food charity as a means to reduce food insecurity and food waste.
