Food Waste in a Food Insecure World - YL Evening Briefing

  • Atlanta Community Food Bank (map)

One third of all food produced worldwide is wasted, amounting to 1.3 billion tons per year, according to the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization. While hundreds of millions go hungry across the world, governments struggle to prioritize sustainable food production and consumption.

Experts each representing a different sector of the food industry – producers, consumers, and service providers – will discuss how Atlanta addresses food insecurity, and give their own vision for ending hunger and food waste both here in Georgia and around the world.
