UNF Dining Services will host Project Clean Plate from Monday, September 30 through Friday, October 4 in the Osprey Café. The aim of this annual initiative is to increase awareness of food waste and challenge students to make a difference within their own dining hall. Students who present their “clean” their plates to dining staff after they are finished with their meal will be entered into a raffle!

 

UNF Dining Services will donate $250 to the Lend-a-Wing Pantry if a 10% reduction of food waste was achieved or a $500 donation if 15% reduction in food waste was achieved, as compared to the prior week. They are looking for three volunteers each day of the project to distribute raffle tickets, collect guest information, help spread the word during lunch hours (11am-2pm). Volunteers will be rewarded with a free lunch pass to the Café.
