An estimated 52 million tons of food is wasted each year, an economic loss of $218 billion (ReFED.com, 2017).  To combat this alarming trend, The Indiana Recycling Coalition directs the Indiana Food Scrap Initiative, a multi-stakeholder initiative that explores the causes of food waste and develops real solutions to food waste recovery at the local and state level. IFSI hosts bi-monthly meetings at which we reveal the causes of food waste, barriers to appropriate management, and the myriad of opportunities at every rung of the waste management hierarchy to prevent, reuse, compost, and digest food waste.  Through the important dialogue, connections made, and knowledge shared through IFSI, IRC hopes to build a more comprehensive infrastructure to address Indiana’s unique food recovery challenges.  Sign up to receive updates from IFSI here!

IFSI IS

  • COORDINATION and space-making for stakeholders
  • CURATION of knowledge base via expert speakers for bi-monthly stakeholder meetings
  • CREATION of tools and resources for food waste recovery
  • CULTIVATION of stakeholders to serve as local food waste recovery leaders
  • CONDUIT for networking and grant opportunities, like the Commercial Food Composting Program
  • COMPILATION of stakeholder preferences into recommendations and strategic food waste recovery plan for Indiana (coming soon)
