Sports Teams

Sustainability on and off the Field

Sports franchises have a unique opportunity to make a real impact in reducing food waste! By partnering with local communities and food banks, teams can redirect surplus concession stand food to those in need. Additionally, teams can use their platforms to educate fans about mindful consumption, encouraging responsible food choices and reducing overall waste. Through these initiatives, sports teams not only score environmental points but also foster a sense of community engagement and responsibility, demonstrating that even the world of sports can play a significant role in tackling food waste.
