The best food & waste news at your disposal

August 2016


Hi there,

While summer might be coming to a close, the topic of food waste is only continuing to heat up. Here at Spoiler Alert, we’ve been busy — we launched a new resource (check it out: A Beginner’s Guide to Food Waste), said goodbye to our summer interns, and talked shop with some of the biggest players in the food industry at the Global Sustainability Summit in New Orleans, hosted by the Food Marketing Institute and Grocery Manufacturers Association.

Overall, it’s been a great summer. We enjoyed watching food waste take the national and international stage at the Democratic National Convention and Rio Olympics, and we are looking forward to celebrating the anniversary of the U.S. EPA/USDA 2030 Food Loss and Waste Reduction Goal in September.

Thanks for your continued support, and as always, find the month’s best food waste content and news below.
