The Zero Waste Food conference, hosted by The New School and the Institute of Culinary Education, is a two-day conference dedicated to exploring better methods for producing, distributing, consuming and disposing of food while creating minimal food waste. We collaborate with companies that share our mission and aim to discover fresh perspectives on sustainability and eliminating food waste through dialogue, culinary demonstrations, and hands-on workshops.

With each partnership that we create, we strive to both accomplish our mutual goals and achieve the unique objectives of each sponsor and partner. For this year’s conference, our number of sponsors will reach more than 300 attendees.
