Speakers from elePlate, County of Los Angeles Public Health, FoodCycle LA and Los Angeles County Public Works will share practical tips, tools and best practices that will empower you to safely handle and donate prepared food.

By attending, you’ll gain actionable knowledge to take steps that reduce food waste and contribute to a more sustainable future. For more details, view the flyer[link], visit the SGVCOG website or contact Johanna Read, SGVCOG, [email protected].
