Furthermore, get really stuck-in! Bring your specific skills to the food waste revolution, and join the CORE team. Feedback is teaming up with leading food waste fighting organizations and institutions to kick off a mass movement against food waste in the U.S. and promote the delicious solutions that exist. As such, we’re looking for social media superstars, extraordinary volunteer managers, logistics geniuses, photographers, sous chefs, drivers, artists and anyone who is keen to get more involved.
