Weigh the Waste Results

After a week of weighing the waste in dining halls around campus, here are our results:

Towers Thursday, October 23rd from 5-7pm:  82.5 lbs
Terraces Wednesday, October 22nd from 5-7pm:  223.5 lbs
Campus Center Tuesday October 21st from 5-7pm: 128 lbs

These numbers are just from a two hour dinner period. Combining all the waste from every other meal served at the dining halls equals a ton of food wasted.

We all need to work together to decrease these numbers. We ask students to please be conscientious of how much food they are putting on their plate and how many napkins they use. Inside the dining hall, we are working with LeanPath to decrease pre-consumer waste. Please read our below blog post for a more in depth description of this!

Any suggestions of how to reach our goal of less waste are always appreciated! We hope these events can encourage students to be more mindful of the food that is wasted in the dining hall.

Thank you to everyone who helped out with this event!
