The Food Waste Fiasco Tour- San Diego, LA, London, & Toronto

I’m very excited to announce that I was invited to do a TEDx talk at the TEDxTeen event in London in January. At first I was unsure if the environmental impact of the flight was worthy but after some thinking I decided that I can make it worth it. There were no direct flights so I have decided to spend some time in each of the cities I am passing through to pass on some inspiration. In each city I’ll be presenting The Food Waste Fiasco and discussing how you can work to end hunger and food waste in your city. For the entire week l I will be at the service of the people in the cities I visit so please contact me if you’d like to do some good together. I’ll have a little free time in each city and would love to get together.

Here is my tour schedule for January 2016.
