Food Waste - Side Effects & Prevention
Check out this infographic from Fix.com about the side effects and prevention of Food Waste!
This infographic reminds me of my time with the Campus Kitchen Project and the Athens Land Trust. The Campus Kitchen Project promotes the use of "existing resources to meet hunger and nutritional needs in communities" through "resourceful and mutually beneficial partnerships among students, social service agencies, businesses and schools." For more information about the Campus Kitchen project click here.
The Athens Land Trust's Community Agriculture program strives to support Athens Land Trust’s commitment to neighborhood revitalization by developing a sustainable local food system in some of Athens’ most food insecure communities, strengthening the local economy and building unity and wellness at the community level.
This program includes the Young Urban Farmers Program which fosters young entrepreneurs who are committed to becoming community leaders. These youth contribute to sustainable food systems by working at community gardens in Athens among other activities. Click here to support the Young Urban Farmer's Program Fundraising Campaign!
