Getting Wasted: L.A.’s food excess
Forums about food issues typically focus on access, origin, health. What’s often missing from those talks is conversation about excess: not in body weight, or in the types of food abundantly available in some areas and sorely lacking in others, but in what’s thrown out or wasted in the day-to-day.
On Monday, May 20, be part of an audience-inclusive, moderated discussion at The Crawford Family Forum that’ll explore how industry, community, policy, and individual efforts to both share and reduce the “extra” might move Los Angeles toward a more food-secure future.
