Did You Know?

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, food waste is estimated to be between 30 and 40% of the entire food supply.

This number is staggering when you consider the amount of food not going to those who need it and how much that contributes to waste in other areas like processing, preparation, transportation, and more. Our sustainability strategy and initiatives at Overland Park Convention Center are mainly focused on tackling the issues of food waste and other forms of waste.
