University of Wisconsin-Green Bay students share surplus food

A new program at the university diverts surplus food from cafeterias to needy local residents.

GREEN BAY, Wis.—College students can be such finicky eaters that they sometimes will leave behind virtually an entire kitchen full of food.

So students and faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay are launching a new program to divert surplus food from studentcafeterias to needy residents across town.

The effort, known as Campus Kitchens, is intended to reduce waste at UWGB while also combating hunger in the surrounding community.
