On November 4, 2016, Green Umbrella, along with the City of Cincinnati’s Office of Environment and Sustainability, Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District and Brueggeman Center for Dialogue at Xavier University convened the first ever regional meeting concerning food waste. The forum brought together over 150 stakeholders from across the food system for a strategic conversation on how to prevent, recover, and recycle wasted food in the Greater Cincinnati region.
Out of that forum came the Greater Cincinnati Regional Food Waste Action Plan, which provided a roadmap for stakeholders to collaborate on preventing, recovering and recycling wasted food in the region. Since then, numerous initiatives have emerged locally and nationally to address this ongoing problem.
