On March 2, Divert NS hosted a Food Waste Summit to increase awareness of the impacts of food waste and to profile initiatives that retailers, institutions and community groups are undertaking to reduce food waste in Nova Scotia and across Canada.
The one-day summit was attended by representatives from retail, academic institutions, the National Zero Waste Council, community groups, and provincial, municipal and federal governments.
The Food Waste Summit was presented in partnership with Walmart Canada and Nova Scotia Environment, with hosting and facilitation by NATIONAL Public Relations.
