    Hi everyone,

    Happy November! I hope everyone had a spooky and fun Halloween! This holiday tends to have a lot of waste associated with it, but one cool tip to avoid food waste is to compost your carved pumpkin! In San Diego, there will be two drop-off locations for pumpkin composting today until 6 p.m. See below image for details and locations.

    Every Saturday from 8am - 1pm the Tuna Harbor Dockside Market in downtown San Diego offers local, sustainable, and ethically caught seafood! They have multiple booths, including a delicious lunch booth from Loaves and Fishes (proceeds benefit those experiencing homelessness). One of the Eco challenges (Food Systems) is to spend 15 minutes learning more about smart seafood choices. Visit and earn challenge points!

    Today we had an event with catering and although some participants did not show up, instead of wasting the leftovers, the boxed lunches were donated to other faculty members. Diversion!

    Woo hoo! Today is the first day of the EcoChallenge! Take some time to select a couple challenges for yourself this week. We will also be measuring our food waste at the end of each day. Feel free to bring in any food waste (scraps, peels, leftovers, etc. - except meat and dairy products) and we will weigh them and then divert them to a food composter.
