#UnWasted campaign

Are you participating in a Hack Your Waste Event or our UnWasted cookoff? Submit your post to this Opportunity Area.

We're already gaining great momentum in our #Unwasted campaign – a series of collaborative efforts that highlight the food we throw out every day. The efforts include: Unwasted Food Diaries and Cook-off, and two global events series: Watch Your Waste Meals and Hack Your Waste Events.

“Hack Your Waste” Events can take many forms: from a traditional full-day or full-weekend “Hack-A-Thon” format, to an open design brainstorm, to a small project work session. You'll learn and practice key design thinking methodologies like collaborative brainstorming, prototyping, and journey-mapping. Focus on ideating solutions that reduce food waste, build a tangible prototype of the idea, and then post it into the OpenIDEO Challenge: your innovation could win $25K for implementation!

Participating in our Cook-off? Upload your recipe and photos to this Opportunity Area.

(In addition, you may still be completing a food diary – find the template here – feel free to upload it to this Opportunity Area.)
