June 23 at 6:30 pm – Reduce Food Waste at Home

With nearly 1 million pounds of food waste being landfilled each day in Central Ohio, it is more important than ever that we reduce food waste in our community. When we waste food, we also waste environmental resources, money, time, and the opportunity to provide meals for hungry neighbors. But each of us can help reduce food waste at home by cooking with a plan, proper food storage, using up leftovers, and more. On Tuesday, June 23 at 6:30 pm, join the SWACO team and local chef L. Fernando Mojica for a free webinar to learn tips and tricks from experts as well as to ask questions about food waste.

Register for the June 23rd Reduce Food Waste at Home Webinar 

July 22 at 1 pm – Community Waste Reduction Grants 

As we continue to navigate these challenging times together, SWACO is here to provide continued waste reduction and diversion programs and services to your organization and the central Ohio community.  One of the programs that we remain committed to offering is our Community Waste Reduction Grant Program (CWRG program).  We are now accepting applications for this grant program for projects occurring in 2021!  Those eligible to apply include non-profits, schools, universities, parks, and local governments in Franklin County, Ohio.
