500 Women Scientists – June Tap Talk

Join 500 Women Scientists Corvallis and Block 15 Brewing Company as we invite Jeanette Hardison, Founder/Director of the No Food Left Behind campaign, and avid local composter Linda Sebring for a discussion on preventing wasted food and properly composting the rest.
You may be surprised to learn that the largest percentage of wasted food in the U.S. actually happens at home, representing a loss of $1,600 a year to the average American family of four. Come away with Smart Strategies and actionable ideas for saving money, while reducing your household’s carbon footprint.
No Food Left Behind is a project of the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s Waste Prevention Action Team.
