In October, 2015 , I was recommended for my school’s “Middle School Capstone Pilot Program”, based off of design thinking. I took the opportunity along with 13 other students. We immediately started to practice using design thinking with several activities. Our Class was later challenged with finding a problem within our school community, and working to solve it using the Dream, Design, Do process that we were taught. Immediately I knew what I was passionate about fixing… cafeteria food waste, specifically from the lunch line. Because federal law states that students purchasing school lunch must have fruit/vegetable, students end up taking food that are unwanted, and it goes to waist. By the end of the school year I had not had enough time to complete my project. I was asked by my superintendent, Dr. Salvatore Menzo, and my school principal, Joseph Piacentini, to continue the project into next year(2016-17). I accepted the offer, and immediately got to work. I set up a “Food Share Table” in the front of the cafeteria for students to place unwanted sealed food items for other students to take as they please. Cafeteria food waste has decreased and ideas to lessen food waste even more are increasing.
