Weigh the Waste Events

Cafeteria in the Thomas A. Bruder. Jr., Life Center Building
Several times a year, to help bring awareness of how much each person can waste, Neumann University’s Dining Services run a “Weigh the Waste” event. During the event, we physically weigh all of the waste from the customers’ plates’ right in the dining room. A powerful visual representation of the waste can be seen by all.
