More than one million New Yorkers are food insecure, living meal-to-meal, often uncertain of when and how each meal will manifest. In contrast, New York City throws out 7,000 tons of food everyday.
Join Edible Manhattan and TouchBistro for tapas, drinks, networking and a food waste discussion led by local experts. You'll learn how you can reduce your own food waste and help fight hunger in NYC. 10% of ticket sales will be donated to City Harvest - New York's leading food rescue organization.
The panel of speakers includes:
- Kate MacKenzie, Senior Director of Programming at City Harvest
- Tony Vu, Founder of MintScraps
- Marcel Van Ooyen, President and CEO of GrowNYC
