Food Tank’s Sold-Out NYC Summit on Food Waste

When conferences are sold out it's usually because attendees expect that presenters, panelists, and org's will provide a unique and valuable experience. Yesterdays NYC Summit on Food Waste hosted by Food Tank is no exception. Not only did they sell out and were at capacity, they also streamed the whole event live with much praise and traffic (70,000 viewers?!!!). A very successful event, for a very important cause.

The Summit was a collection of those working on the forefront of food waste prevention.

As a result of that live stream, Food Tank has recorded and posted the whole proceedings on the YouTube video below.
