This event is a collaboration with Boulder StartUp Week: https://boulderstartupweek2019.sched.com/
Location: the Riverside, 1724 Broadway, Boulder
Description: Why do surplus crops sometimes lie composting in the fields? What happens to imperfect produce? What prevents Colorado farmers from selling more of what they grow? Why doesn’t our surplus food go to feed the hungry? Discuss the answers to these questions and find out what local farmers, businesses, and organizations are doing to reduce food loss, increase profits, provide jobs, and make local food more accessible.
