MARY TALKS: Food Waste & the World’s Stupidest Problem

Mary Talks: Kashef Majid

Join us ONLINE for the next Mary Talk of the 2021-22 academic year!

We will hear from Dr. Kashef Majid, professor of marketing at Mary Washington, as he presents “Stop Wasting our Food: Food Waste and the World’s Stupidest Problem.”

Why is it that we squander one-third of all food? Households in the U.S. waste thousands of dollars each year on uneaten food “because we’ve been tricked,” Dr. Majid says. In a new course called Alleviating Food Waste, Dr. Majid helps UMW students explore the root causes of unused food and how the issue can be remedied.

Wednesday, February 2
7:30-8:30 p.m. (EDT)
Online (via Zoom)
