Composting - only began measuring Spring 2013, so the baseline number is zero
Food Recovery - we have not started the program, so the baseline number is zero
Composting - we need to start inputting our weights from spring and now
We need to be careful since we also collect from our Motherhouse, that we only record Mercyhurst's food waste
Food Recovery - final stages
Insurance and lawyers checked over liability paperwork which will be getting signed soon
Volunteer liability waivers already created
Food Recovery guidelines already created
Help push for the start of a food donation program and additional PR for our sustainability efforts
