Every day, Harvard Dining Services operates more than a dozen dining halls at Harvard College, and every day, a certain amount of hot food goes untouched. What happens to this leftover food? Join us for a discussion with Sasha Purpura, Executive Director at local non-profit, Food for Free, and Crista Martin, Director for Strategic Initiatives and Communications at HUDS. Learn more about what happens to leftover food in dining halls, how food insecurity affects the local community, and how Harvard students can reduce food waste and combat food insecurity. 

This discussion will be moderated by the Food Literacy Project Food Recovery Fellows, Haesung Jee and Breda Page Violette.
