Problem: The US throws away almost 50% of their food every year. That is approximately 52 tons of food annually. Just 5% of America’s food leftovers alone could feed 4 million people for a day. At CRMS even though we compost all of our waste, we are still disposing of 250 pounds of compostable waste per week. So while we are keeping it out of the landfill, we are still wasting it.

Solution: While we no longer use cafeteria trays at CRMS as it encourages overloading. We still need to remember to take only as much food as you can finish. It is better to go back for seconds than to take too much food the first time and end up throwing it away.
