Dana Gunders is a leading expert on food system efficiency and, according to Consumer Reports, "the woman who helped start the waste-free movement.” She founded and led the Natural Resource Defense Council’s initiative to reduce food waste, during which time she authored Waste Free Kitchen Handbook, testified in Congress, and launched the Save the Food campaign, a national media campaign that has generated over $75M in donated media to date. Her work on food waste has been featured by John Oliver, Science Friday, Dr. Oz, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Real Simple, and hundreds of other outlets. Dana now provides advisory services on food waste prevention and spends far too much time devising ways to get her two small kids to throw less food on the floor.
