Reducing Food Waste on College Campuses
Make Food Not Waste will use this grant to create and deliver a behavior change program directed at college students. The purpose of the program is to reduce consumer food waste, which remains the greatest source of food waste in the food system. The program will focus on college campuses because research shows that college students are significant generators of food waste, especially of edible food. Make Food Not Waste will develop and deliver the program in partnership with five local colleges and universities (Oakland University, Lawrence Technological University, College for Creative Studies, Wayne State University, and University of Detroit-Mercy).
