Over one-third of the food produced in the U.S. is never consumed, wasting the energy and water used to produce it, filling landfills, and adversely impacting the economy, our communities, and the environment. The U.S. EPA Excess Food Opportunities Map seeks to support nationwide diversion of this excess food from landfills. The interactive map identifies and displays facility-specific information about potential generators and recipients of excess food in the industrial, commercial, and institutional sectors and also provides estimates of excess food by generator type. The map displays the locations of potential excess food generators including correctional facilities, educational institutions, healthcare facilities, restaurants and food services, and more. The map also displays the locations of potential recipients of excess food including anaerobic digestion facilities, composting facilities, and food banks.
Steve Rock from EPA’s Office of Research and Development and Claudia Fabiano from EPA’s Office of Land and Emergency Management will present this webinar on the Excess Food Opportunities Map.
