October 16 – Household Food Waste Management: Alternatives to Diaries and Digs (Zoom webinar) – 11 a.m., Few people like to take the garbage out, let alone measure it.  This yuk factor creates a significant barrier to measuring food waste in household settings. Direct measurement in diaries and weighing food-waste caddies often relies upon intimate contact between people and unwanted food.  This has contributed to a paucity of data on wasted food, which hinders understanding and evaluation.
