Did you know that up to 40% of food produced is wasted?
Chartwells is challenging students to reduce food waste at the North Campus dining commons and Marsh Hall dining room in February and March. The goal is to educate the community and to reduce food waste, save resources and save money.
How it Works
Volunteers will weigh waste at stations near the plate return area. Those who return a clean plate will receive raffles for dining dollar prizes. Any waste will be scraped into buckets and later weighed. If we reduce the amount of food we waste in March by 5% or more, Chartwells will donate money to the SSU food pantry.
Phase I: 2/6 lunch, 2/7 dinner, 2/8 lunch
Phase II: 3/20 lunch, 3/21 dinner, 3/22 lunch
Take the Challenge!
Please support this effort by dining on campus during one of the meals listed.
