Just a few days ago, I was invited to participate in the Midwest Dairy Health and Wellness
Advisory Roundtable on Sustainable Nutrition at the Arkansas Food Bank in Little Rock.
The topic of sustainable nutrition involved presentations about what the dairy industry is
doing in regards to sustainability and the role that food waste plays in our everyday activities.
I keep thinking about these facts...
Nearly 1 in 5 children in the U.S. face hunger.
In Arkansas, 1 in 4 children face hunger.
About 40% of the U.S. food supply is never eaten and is thrown
away at home,in grocery stores and restaurants.
I'm thankful for the health professionals that are working in a variety of settings
in our local communities to fight hunger and food waste
provide nutritious dairy products that consumers want,
in a way that makes the industry,people and the earth economically,
environmentally and socially better--now and for future generations.
