    Anyway you look at it, Food Waste is a problem of enormous proportions. Over a third of the food produced globally goes to waste. The value of this wasted food is worth over $1 trillion, weighs 1.3 billion tons, and is a massive contributor to greenhouse gases. There are numerous reasons that contribute to this problem starting from the food wasted at home, the supply chain, cultural perceptions etc. We will discuss some of these issues from a historical perspective, contrast them with how these issues are currently dealt with, and learn about what we can do to help alleviate this problem.

    Our Speakers:

    Janet Beizer, a Cornell alum, is a Professor of Romances Languages and Literatures at Harvard University. She is currently a Guggenheim fellow, and a Martha Sutton Weeks fellow at the Stanford Humanities Center. While at the Center this year, Beizer is working on a book project tentatively called The Harlequin Eaters: The Patchwork Imaginary of Nineteenth-Century ParisThe concept of “harlequins” refers to the practice, in 19th century Paris, of reassembling dinner scraps cleared from the plates of the wealthy to sell, re-plated, to the poor.

    Charlie Barre, a Graduate of the Marshall School of Business from University of Southern California, is the Head of Growth at Copia. Charlie is helping businesses reduce food waste and maximize savings. She also works on re-purposing edible surplus to feed local communities in need. 

    Beverages and light hors d'oeuvres will be served.


    6:30-7:00PM: Networking

    7:00-8:00PM: Discussion on Food Waste followed by Q&A

    8:00-8:30PM: Networking

    Cornell University's founder, Ezra Cornell, was the university's first entrepreneur. Today, Ezra's spirit of entrepreneurship has grown to global proportions with Cornellians driving innovation from Roosevelt Island to Silicon Valley. Please join us May 23rd for CU Founded, where VitaScan, an innovative Cornell-based startup, will tell its story and pitch to a panel of VCs.

    Many people are deficient in vitamins and micronutrients but unaware of their deficiencies. VitaScan has developed a smartphone-based diagnostic platform to solve that problem, which is a fast, convenient, and low cost way to test personal nutritional levels and be better informed about daily requirements. Professor David Erickson will discuss how the technology moved from his lab into a new mobile and global health startup and Dr. Li Jiang, the CEO of VitaScan, will pitch to a panel of Venture Capitalists, followed by a Q&A session. 

    The program will end with a networking reception with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.
