  • Reflection Question
    Food Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?

    Definitely healthier to reduce my portion size and creates less waste!
  • Reflection Question
    Food Composting
    Producing food that goes uneaten squanders many resources—seeds, water, energy, land, fertilizer, hours of labor, financial capital. Which of these kinds of waste most motivates you to change your behavior regarding food waste? Why?

    I think the thought of children going hungry while we throw away food always motivates me.  In some places it is illegal for stores to throw away food.  We need to change the way we think about some of these problems.
