College Eight/Oakes Dining Hall Reduces Food Waste by 14 Pounds

Congratulations to the College Eight/Oakes Dining Hall and residents for reducing their food waste to 49 pounds total during dinner service on January 24th! Since students decreased their food waste from 63 pounds during a dinner service waste audit last quarter, Dining celebrated with a delicious ice cream party.

When we reduce the amount of food waste, we reduce the amount of waste that needs to be hauled to a composting facility, thus saving money and reducing transportation carbon emissions. In addition to reducing our impact on the climate, this money in turn can be used to purchase more interesting and delicious food in the dining halls!
