SEBS Virtual Learning Experience: “Let’s Talk Turkey: the Impact of Food Waste During Thanksgiving”

Share This:

In the United States, we waste about 30-40% of the food we grow. However, on Thanksgiving Day alone, we waste approximately 172 million pounds of turkey, 40 million pounds of mashed potatoes, and 38 million pounds of stuffing. Waste has social, economic, and environmental impacts. During this session, we will discuss the impacts of food waste, as well as ways to reduce food waste on Thanksgiving and beyond.

Sara Elnakib CC’07, SPH’13, Registered Dietitian and Family & Community Health Sciences Educator for Passaic County, will present.
