Kelly Hodgins (University of Guelph/Feeding 9 Billion)
I work for the Guelph Food Waste Research Project, Feeding 9 Billion, and at the community-level. I instigated and am currently rolling-out an initiative with Overwaitea Food Group (Western Canada) to help connect their stores with farmers in order to redirect organic wastes from the landfill and to farm use. I am also working to help the University of Guelph re-establish its organics diversion program. I also keep busy with outreach activities/education for consumers. In my role as coordinator for Feeding 9 Billion, I seek to highlight the connections between food waste and food insecurity, and communicate this to the student population.
