Orange County, California is known for its beach communities and Disneyland, however, 400,000 people and 20% of children in Orange County are food insecure. The Waste Not OC Coalition, an innovative public/private collaborative, strives to eliminate hunger and food waste by facilitating the donation of wholesome surplus food from food producing facilities to pantries with the support of health inspectors. Attendees will learn how to create similar coalitions, increase food donations, challenge food donation myths, and alleviate hunger.
