Earth Week Service in Action

Saturday, April 27, 2024 12:00 AM – 11:59 PM
  • Location
    Anywhere in the world
  • Description
    Reducing food waste is currently rated as the #1 way to mitigate the climate crisis. In the U.S. alone, nearly 40% of food is wasted at the consumer level, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions, wasted resources, and keeping food-insecure people hungry.
    Notre Dame International, Student Government, and Sustainability are encouraging the ND family from every corner of the world to participate in a service event in honor of Earth Week to help mitigate food waste. This service can be in whatever capacity is a viable option for you. Some sample actions include:

    Participating in the canned food drive in Dublin April 22-26 or donating unwanted food to your local food pantry 

    Volunteering at Cultivate in South Bend on April 23 or volunteering at a local food rescue near you
    Starting an at-home composting program
    Participate in a Waste 'n Weigh event in the Dining Halls
    Make a plan and pledge to reduce your food waste at home 

    The possibilities are endless for you to make an impact on our food systems. If you're planning a service event for Global Day of Action, be sure to let us know and gain participation! If you can't participate on April 27, feel free to provide an act of service in anticipation of the Global Day of Action. Whatever you decide to do, be sure to tag @NDInternational and @SustainableND on Instagram with #NDEarthWeek.
