Food Waste & Recovery Work Group

The CFN Food Waste & Recovery Work Group (FWRWG) (formerly Food Recovery Work Group) comprises stakeholders representing Food Waste, Food Recovery, Food Repurposing, Food Conservation, and related areas with a shared goal of better understanding and advancing the food system of the Chesapeake Bay region.

The FWRWG meets quarterly (last meeting’s minutes are here) and convenes space for regional learning opportunities, discussions, updates, and collective action. Nancy Nunn, of the Harry R. Hughes Center for Agro-ecology,  is the FWRWG Chair. Learn more about the FWRWG, share information, and connect with members via our Google Group regional listserv.

Check out our last FWRWG May 12th webinar, “Food Recovery in Maryland: An example of statewide organizing” (click on the title for the link). This webinar, hosted by the FWRWG, provided an overview of the first state in the Chesapeake foodshed to organize a statewide food recovery summit. Not from Maryland? Check it out to see if there is overlap and opportunities to apply lessons learned in your state or region.
