What is a Get Food Smart TN Partner?

A Get Food Smart TN Partner is any group, organization or initiative that does not generate food waste or directly deal with food waste in a hands on manner (such as composting or recovery) but work to promote, support and implement food waste conscious practices and policies across the state of Tennessee. TDEC’s Get Food Smart TN Partners collaborate to promote the Get Food Smart TN recognition program, develop resources to address food waste related issues, provide technical assistance, conduct trainings and workshops, design and affect local policy, and take other actions to help reduce food waste. Current Get Food Smart TN Partners include:
