Can you imagine if every time you opened your wallet, a third of your cash fell out and you did nothing
about it? Consider the fact that one-third of the food grown annually for human consumption is never eaten – for one reason or another, it ends up in the garbage. That’s $218 billion – or 1.3 billion tons of food annually. In America, families discard about 25% of the food and beverages they buy at a cost of $1,365 to $2,275 annually. Yet at the same time, 800 million people around the globe are starving. It’s a problem, but one with no shortage of solutions.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chefs like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
The filmed is sponsored by SUNY New Paltz Campus Auxiliary Services and Sodexo and co-sponsored by the Hudson Valley Regional Council, Hudson Valley Agribusiness Development Corp, Valley Table and ZeroToGo, LLC.

So many young people in the Charlottesville community saw violent and terrifying actions in early August. We want to replace hate and fear with love and a sense of security, to let all kids know they are loved.
Create a postcard with colorful drawings and messages of love and tolerance; New Paltz is standing behind them after a display of hate, showing that we believe in their ability to build a better world.
Come to the Volunteer Fair on 9/13 to participate in a positive postcard writing campaign for children in the Charlottesville, VA area. More about the #dearyoungperson campaign can be found here.
These 6th graders are funny and interested and it should be a lot of fun for students to meet them. The primary idea for the tour is to get them interested in college and meet a student who can share their enthusiasm with the group.
