World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Florida International University (FIU), supported by the American Hotel & Lodging Education Foundation (AHLEF), are coordinating this workshop to provide hotel staff an opportunity to develop a property level strategy map for tackling their food waste challenge, as well as a forum to connect with key technical assistance providers locally who can help put their strategy into practice.

This event is brought to you with generous support from the American Hotel and Lodging Education Foundation. With this support, we are able to offered a subsidized registration fee of $25.

This workshop will meet the following objectives:

  • Raise awareness of the social, environmental, and economic impacts of food waste.

  • Create a strategy document for how to integrate food waste prevention into business processes.

  • Schedule food waste audits and develop a process for measurement and tracking of food waste to understand reduction in food waste over time.

  • Set meetings with a donation or composting partner and outline steps for establishing a property program.

Register for the full day if you are seeking additional training on the Hotel Kitchen resources or the demonstration project engagement model.
