Weighing waste for Earth Day

On Monday, April 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., TCNJ Dining Services staff set up a table in front of the dish receptacle in the Eickhoff Atrium where they took wasted food from students’ plates and measured the amount in pounds collected after the lunch hour.  Amount to be released today (Tuesday).

Marketing Coordinator for TCNJ Dining Services, Caitlin Moskwa, explained that the staff holds this event on Earth Day every year to “make students aware of the food that is wasted everyday in Eickhoff.”
