Nashville Food Waste Initiative

Founded by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in 2015 and in partnership with the Environmental Law Institute, the Nashville Food Waste Initiative (NFWI) drives citywide policies and strategies that reduce food waste by preventing wasted food, rescuing surplus food for those in need, and composting and recycling food scraps to build healthy soil.  Through the NFWI, Urban Green Lab organizes, trains, and connects diverse food waste stakeholders year-round and offers training for how you can reduce food waste in your own institution.
