Food Tank CEO Danielle Nierenberg Moderates Discussion of Food Waste Solution and Private Sector’s Role in Combating Climate Change

Each year approximately 40 percent of the food grown in this country is thrown away. Much of that goes to landfills where it emits methane gas, making it one of the largest contributors to climate change. Justin and Matt Kamine have now created the first large scale solution to fighting food waste and bringing to market for consumers through a new climate forward CPG company Do Good Foods.

Do Good Foods is a closed loop system that takes nutritious supermarket surplus such as fruits, vegetable and meat – and upcycles them into high-quality animal feed — the next best use of food after human consumption, according to the EPA.

The animal feed is then integrated into animals’ diets and in January 2022 the company will roll out the first-ever carbon reduced chicken.

Be among the first to learn more about the environmental and economic impact of the scalability of Do Good Foods and the importance of consumer participation. The Live Virtual Roundtable will be moderated by Food Tank’s Danielle Nierenberg will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. EST.

  • Sam Kass, President Obama’s former chef and nutrition policy advisor
