EPA SMM Introducing the US EPA Excess Food Opportunities Map (version 1.0)

July 12, 2018, Time: 12-1:30 pm CDT
Webinar
Type: Event

Description:
EPA is announcing a new resource in the fight against food loss and waste: the EPA Excess Food Opportunities Map (https://geopub.epa.gov/excessfoodmap).

This national, interactive map can help you save money, feed people, and keep food out of landfills. The map identifies more than 500,000 potential generators of excess food (e.g. correctional facilities, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, hospitality industry, food manufacturers and processors, and food wholesalers and distributors) and estimated generation quantities, as well as over 4,000 potential recipients of excess food (e.g. anaerobic digestion and composting facilities, food banks). The map can help users identify potential sources of food for rescue; potential feedstocks for compost and anaerobic digestion; potential infrastructure gaps for managing excess food; and, alternatives to sending food to landfill. The map is intended to give users the tools to understand the potential magnitude of excess food in their communities, and help make connections between generators and recipients such that more food is diverted from landfills and put toward more beneficial uses. This demonstration and discussion of methodology will be accompanied by a presentation about how this data can be used at the community level.
