The day is organized into three main components. An opening plenary that will orient all attendees to where the Greater Cincinnati Region stands in addressing food waste relative to the national movement; break out sessions on measuring, preventing, recovering, and recycling food waste which will involve brief presentations from local experts successes and challenges in addressing institutional and consumer food waste in our region; and final plenary session that will harvest the conversations of the break out sessions to create a road map for the next two to three years of work. The break out sessions will include ample time for facilitated audience and panel discussion of how strategic collaborations among those present could overcome barriers that have been encountered in addressing wasted food.

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.
