Postsecondary Schools Will Collaborate In Training Food Waste-Conscious Chefs

November 15, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Philadelphia’s Drexel University is collaborating with other colleges and universities to develop a curriculum whose mission is to reduce food waste in restaurants by training educators to inspire and teach culinary students to minimize food waste. Of the $218 billion in food waste – 63 million tons – annually, a third is wasted by restaurants and commercial foodservice businesses. The Drexel project is supported by the James Beard Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, and will involve other schools, including New York University, the Academy of Culinary Arts, Boston University, and Colorado State University.  [Image Credit: © Drexel University ]
