Action-packed convening for multi-sector leaders and advocates committed to food waste and hunger in San Diego County.

We believe in retiring the word “waste” when it comes to food because all resources are valuable.

Join us in this year’s Summit to:
-Discuss promising solutions and high-impact opportunities.
-Hear national trends and align San Diego’s actions.
-Network and collaborate across sectors.
-Strategize to advance policies and actions forward in San Diego.
-Share resources and best practices to address food waste now .
