  1. I work for the federal government, particularly the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) in Dallas, Texas. I would like to meet you and discuss EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management Program and particularly a new voluntary program the federal government has called the Food Recovery Challenge. Through this challenge, we want to challenge you and work with you to reduce as much of your food waste as possible! We want to learn what you are already doing and we want to share what others have done with you! If you have a hurdle, we are here to track down a solution with you. For our assistance, we ask only for you to go to our website and put in a reduction goal and track your progress on the website. That way we can track how well we are doing in helping our partners. Joining the challenge reduces food costs, assist your less fortunate neighbors, and protects your environment. We ask for a short phone call to show you what we can offer in return for your participation. Will you join?
