The 2018 Midwest Food Recovery Summit will take place September 11-13, 2018, at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown.

The first summit, held in September 2017, brought together over 130 attendees from all over the United States (18 states overall) and Canada to discuss their food waste initiatives, case studies, and successes to overcome and tackle food waste. Speakers and attendees alike came from numerous industries (education, grocery stores, restaurants, consultants, regulatory agencies, landfill operations, and more) and focused on initiatives from many levels of food recovery (source reduction, food insecurity, anaerobic digestion, composting, landfill operations, and more).

The 2018 summit will do the same and include keynotes, panel discussions, and interactive workshops allowing attendees to learn, network, and discuss ways to tackle food waste as well as showcase their own efforts to reduce food waste and increase food recovery and recycling.

Early bird registration is open until July 13, 2018. To register or learn more about sponsorship opportunities, the schedule, or other details, please visit mwfoodsummit.com
