Addressing Food Loss and Waste in a COVID-19 World

COVID-19 has led to a crisis in the food system, with many fearing a global rise in food loss and waste due to disruptions along the supply chain. But around the world, efforts are underway to ensure food makes it to people, not left to rot in fields or landfills.

On June 23, Champions 12.3 hosted a webinar to explore:

  • How is COVID-19 impacting food loss and waste levels around the globe?
  • What actions can governments and companies take to prevent this food loss and waste?
  • What efforts are already showing success?

Speakers discussed these questions and how the audience can help reduce food loss and waste during this crisis.
