Joint Webinar Presentation | Why RDs Need to Be Trash Talking | Presented by Dr. Joan Salge Blake, EdD, MS, RDN, LDN, FAND | Thursday, August 13, 2020, from 2–3 PM EDT | Earn 1 CEU
Up to 40 percent of the food in the United States is wasted. This translates to over $160 billion of edible food being tossed rather than consumed. Sadly, this wasted food — which is the single largest component of our landfills — rots in dumps and landfills producing methane, an environmentally ugly greenhouse gas.

To add more misery to this issue, over 12 percent of United States households experience food insecurity forcing them to go to bed hungry. So how can we stop wasting food, hurting the environment, and instead start helping our hungry neighbors?

Join Joan Salge Blake, EdD, MS, RDN, LDN, FAND, on Thursday, August 13, 2020, from 2–3 PM EDT, as she shows you why and how everyone, from the farmer to the consumer, can play an active role in reducing food waste.

Learning Objectives
1. Identify the stages in the farm-to-table continuum where food is wasted.
2. Understand and detail the three reasons food is wasted.
3. Explain and implement three ways consumers can reduce food waste.
