Dining Hall Food Waste Analysis

A spring 2015 Green Fund Grant funded the research of a food waste audit at the Hill College House dining hall. The student-led project built upon the work of an audit conducted at King’s Court English House dining hall in the fall of 2014. The goal of this project was to create advisory data for future waste management efforts at Penn. The expected return on the investment is in the form of increased environmental consciousness and sustainability at the University, in accordance with the Waste Minimization section of the Climate Action Plan 2.0, which specifies waste audits as an appropriate action.
