For our Earth Day initiative we are inviting everyone to participate in the EPA Federal Food Too Good to Waste Challenge. Food Too Good To Waste.

The goal of the challenge is to reduce the amount of food that does not get eaten and winds up in our waste stream. Not only does this impact our campus diversion rate, but it also wastes a lot of money that has been used to purchase food to eat. We will kick off our Food Waste Challenge this year at our first Farmers Market on June 15. Stop by and sign up and take the pledge. You will get great tips on expiration dates and best by dates on manufactured food items, storage tips for produce, and creative reminders to eat perishable foods first. Not only is this a great tool to use for food storage on the campus, but this will also be useful at home.
