We will begin by hearing the scope of the challenge of agricultural seconds -- the slightly damaged or misshapen produce that gets thrown away because it doesn't meet restaurant and supermarket first quality criteria -- and the scope of the economic opportunity. We will hear about a few organizations already working in the space here in and hear firsthand about the possibilities within seconds. We will close out the session in a large-scale brainstorm, hearing from anyone interested in or considering their own food business using seconds as a prime material source.
