The panel discussed achieving a more sustainable San Antonio through reducing food waste, composting and utilizing area farmers and local produce. A common theme was eliminating waste in food production and serving.



Chef Steve McHugh discussed how utilizing whole animals and working directly with area farmers has reduced food waste in his Pearl area restaurant. “I’ve always been acutely aware that when you throw trash away,



it doesn’t just disappear,” said Kate Jaceldo, Owner of Compost Queens. For more information on ReWorksSA or SWMD services, visit: https://www.reworkssa.org/ or follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/reworkssanantonio.
