"Erase the Doubt about Food Safety"

Presented by Community Food Rescue

You've probably heard the motto "when in doubt, throw it out" and maybe that simple rhyme is guiding your decisions in the kitchen and leading to a lot of unnecessary food waste. In this free webinar, hosted by the Montgomery County Food Council and presented by Manna Food Center’s Community Food Rescue program, we'll try to erase, or at least minimize, some of the doubt around whether a food is safe to eat. Should you consume food from dented cans? How important is the date on that carton of eggs? Being able to more confidently answer these timeless and important questions can help you save money and protect the environment. We'll also provide tips on what to do with safe, but surplus, food.

Maine Food Waste Solutions Summit

Presented by Food Rescue Maine

The Maine Food Waste Solutions Summit is Maine’s major food waste event that brings together our state’s key food system participants—farms, food businesses, feeding partners, community leadership, government and nonprofit organizations—to focus on ending food waste in Maine. This year, we recognize the key role that individuals of all ages play. Only by engaging consumers and households can we return to a circular Maine food system where food is highly valued and never wasted. This vision for Maine’s food system will especially benefit individuals by lowering food costs and improving food access as well as by protecting valued natural resources – water, air, and climate!

Keynote Speakers:

  • Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, Maine First District Representative; She is developing new bipartisan legislation to help end food waste in the U.S.

  • Linda Breggin, Environmental Law Institute

  • Claudia Fabiano, U.S. Environmental Protection Administration and the “Food – Too Good To Waste” Network
