NYC Department of Sanitation and its Foundation for New York’s Strongest Announce NYC Food Waste Fair


New York City businesses throw away more than 650,000 tons of food waste annually-yet, as you know well, food scraps aren’t garbage. Instead, that food could be used to feed people and animals, nourish soil, grow healthy food, and create energy.
