Ceci Crawford ’20 had planned to complete a senior project on reducing food waste in the Student-Faculty Center. With the arrival of distance learning mid-semester, she shifted her focus to how community members can reduce food waste at home. For the video she created, above, which was part of her project, she interviewed CA seniors and faculty members who are trying a variety of tactics to reduce food waste while they practice social distancing. “My hope is that this would remind everyone to think a little more about their own food waste when they’re at home,” she says.
