The EAT Research Group traveled to Burlington, Vermont on June 20 to present at the conference “Collaboration and Innovation Across the Food System” – the joint annual meeting of the Association for the Study of Food and Society (ASFS) and the Agriculture, Food and Human Values Society (AFHVS). Ashley Smith ’15 and Anthony Feudale ’14 had poster presentations accepted to the conference. Ashley’s project “Experience More, Waste Less” tracked food waste in the LVC dining hall, while Tony’s project “Food Attitudes” tracked student attitudes toward the initiatives put in place by Metz to aid in the reduction of food waste.
The EAT group also conducted a roundtable discussion about the year’s initiatives. This panel included Ashley Ferrari ’14 and Ashley Smith ’14, along with Robert Valgenti (EAT faculty director) and Bill Allman (General Manager for Metz Culianary Management).
