Hi all, How many of you know what a MEHKO is?
I googled MEHKO--interesting!
I'm managing editor of the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development, a sister organization of NAFSN. I'll share some articles from JAFSCD on topics related to our speakers' work during the webinar. https://foodsystemsjournal.org
Is restaurant food upcycled through policy implementation or just relationships between Upcycled Food Association?
MEHKO is an acronym for “Microenterprise Home Cooking Operation.” A MEHKO is a food facility that is run from a private residence. Typically, meals are prepared by a home cook and served as take-out or delivery. In some cases, MEHKOs can offer dine-in service as well.
What was the first thing you did when you decided on your career change?
When you say that you stumbled upon the field, what exactly do you mean by that? What did that process look like?
JAFSCD has published a lot with keywords "food loss." Here's a couple: "Making a Market for On-farm Food Loss" at https://doi.org/10.5304/jafscd.2020.092.014; "Community-Based Food Waste Modeling and Planning Framework for Urban Regions" at https://doi.org/10.5304/jafscd.2019.091.009
As someone who works on a farm I see a lot of food waste personally within the agricultural food system, how does your career affect this system?
Today's news the Sushi industry is booming
JAFSCD has also published a lot related to Bailey's work: search on "aquaculture" or "fish" to check it out at https://foodsystemsjournal.org
Maine 4-H has an Aquaculture Tool kit for teachers
The Kroger Co. Zero Hunger Zero Food Waste Foundation gave out 10 100K grants this year A virtual event is tomorrow if interested
What would be the most positive effect economically of your job?
There will be some upcycled brands there as well!
Thank you for sharing Michael!
What is the nutritional value of seaweed and what kind of food that we are currently eating could it be a good substitute for?
Is the communication you’re discussion these meetings or convening?
Glad I got it right! Thanks for the question Sara!
On the MEHKO, for more info see www.mehkomikey.com There are now over 120 Micro Home Restaurants in California and Utah passed the law and is writing the regs now
Thanks all have another Webinar! Chef Mikey likes it!
Is seaweed farming mainly artisanal or is the corporate sector starting to move in and displace small producers?
Thanks for staying up late, Bailey!
