ONLINE: Earth Month Learning Series - Produce Rescue: A Deliciously Ugly Truth by Kendon Jung

This event last occurred March 19, 2020

Join the ASU Staff Council Sustainability Committee for an engaging and thought-provoking series of talks centered around sustainability topics voted on by fellow ASU faculty and staff. Learn how you can seamlessly incorporate sustainability initiatives into your everyday life. 

51% of food is wasted in the US annually. 51%! Celebrate Earth Day by learning how you can help change that. Produce On Wheels - With Out Waste (P.O.W.W.O.W.) disperses fresh produce to communities at churches, schools and other entities throughout Southern Arizona and the Metropolitan Tucson and Phoenix service areas. 10 million lbs. of fresh nutritional rescued produce annually are delivered to agency sites for distribution to supporters. Kendon Jung from ASU Changemaker Central leads the produce rescue and will provide information and statistics on this program. Kendon Jung graduated from ASU with a bachelor's degree in sustainable urban dynamics (2013) and a master's degree in higher and postsecondary education (2016). He has been on the forefront of desert water policy, global corporate social impact and urban resiliency in three nationally recognized research centers. And most recently, Kendon is serving as the Chair for the City of Tempe's Sustainability Commission, employing innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration and long-term visioning to help guide Tempe towards a more sustainable future.

This presentation will be available via Zoom. If you can't make the live presentation, don't worry! The webinar will be recorded and posted on the Staff Council Sustainability Committee Website for later viewing.
