Daily Messaging during the Week

Food is life, love, culture, medicine and so much more. Food Waste is a solvable problem.  The messaging of the week focuses on our connection to food, how preventing food waste saves money and sharing food waste solutions.

What is my role as a partner?

Partners amplify food conservation messaging from the Communication Toolkit which will be released at the How to Partner Info Session. The toolkit includes the Daily Social Media Calendar and templates of email blasts, organizational messaging, press releases and more.  As a partner, you are encouraged to tailor messages to fit your organization’s mission and highlight the work you are doing to reduce food waste. Individuals may get involved by reposting daily social media messages. The Food Hero Bingo Challenge

and Taking the Pledge on Friday are created to get EVERYONE involved. 

Get involved as a Sponsor of the event!
