Institutional Food Waste and Composting at Humphrey

April 16, 2015
HHH 215 
12:30 - 1:30 pm

Marta Monti is a second year Master of Public Policy student that has spent her time at the Humphrey School studying and working on issues surrounding institutional food waste. In her research, she has explored food waste in the residential dining halls through a quantitative and qualitative study that has involved waste collection, categorization, and weighing, as well as interviews with students and staff. 

Additionally, through her work with the Humphrey Food Policy Collaborative, Marta and others have been working diligently to introduce organics recycling collection to the Humphrey building. Her talk will highlight her research findings, as well as discuss the steps involved with institutionalizing compost collection in the Humphrey building.

This event is a part of the STEP-FAR seminar series. The events are designed for students, staff, faculty, and fellows to get together in an informal setting to discuss their projects, research-in-progress, opportunities, and a variety of other issues related to science, technology, environment, energy, and policy. It is a bi-weekly seminar taking place throughout the academic year. Learn more about STEP-FAR.
