Read It & Eat Culinary Conference 2019

Have you ever thought about all the scraps, peels, rinds and other parts of fruits and vegetables that get discarded during meal prep; or about what happens with all the perishable foods that get discarded from grocery stores? Did you know that over 40 percent of the food produced in the United States goes to waste?

At this year's Read It and Eat Culinary Conference: Wastedopens a new window, we'll learn about organizations rescuing and donating perishable foods to feed our community. We'll also explore creative ways that you can turn your scraps into delicious dishes. Join us as we talk with experts in the zero waste food movement on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on the fourth floor of W. Dale Clark Main Libraryopens a new window. Come hungry as there will be many samples to taste!
