    Starting as early as 2005 select localities in South Korea required households to separate food waste and pay a weight-based fee for discarded items. Dr. Seunghoon Lee, postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will share research in which he exploits the gradual country-wide expansion of this program to evaluate how food waste taxes affected household food waste rates, food purchasing patterns, eating habits, and time use. Spoiler alert: he finds that a small tax (less than 3 cents/lb.) reduced food waste by 20% (~116 pounds/year).

  8. May 19, 2022, 12:00pm - 1:00pm

    Professor and food waste expert Brian Roe will be a guest on the KnowFOOD - WASTED webinar. This episode focuses on looking at how can we use technology to better understand the sources of food loss and waste, the interventions that will prevent them and the potential for upscaling specific food components. We will also ask what sorts of cyberinfrastructures and sociotechnical systems will best enable the circular economy of food? What data is needed? How might we best facilitate interoperability?

  9. May 4, 2022, 12:00pm - 1:00pm

    This webinar will feature Assistant Professor Margaret Jodlowski, who will cover recent research on how workers respond to different attributes of a job. Wage, of course, is the primary attribute of interest for both workers and firms, but increasing attention is now being given to how workers value other attributes, such as the flexibility of hours, the availability of shorter shifts, or the possibility of remote work. Implications for agricultural and agribusiness employers will be discussed throughout the talk.

  10. Apr 18, 2022, 1:00pm - 2:30pm

    Reducing wasted food not only benefits the environment, but can provide opportunities to feed our community, save money and improve public health. In this webinar groups funded via US EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management projects share lessons learned from implementing two distinct approaches to reducing food waste and diverting it from landfills.
