Conference Opportunity
As the six-month mark of Superstorm Sandy approaches, join the Northeast Region of the Roosevelt Institute | Campus Network at Yale on April 6, 2013, for a conference focused on the storm’s ongoing impact, lessons learned, and ideas for how to reduce community vulnerability in the future. The coordinators are looking for people to work with students on policy proposals, editors to refine pieces, and those interested in participating in the conference. Email us if you’re interested in getting involved!

Event Update: Save the Leftovers
Thank you to all who slogged through some truly gross weather to join us at our Save the Leftovers! launch brunch at Haley House Bakery & Cafe. We were delighted to see many of you, and to welcome Johan from Bootstrap Compost to talk about their innovative business (and distribute samples of sweet composted soil!).

A few take-aways if you couldn’t join us:

  • According to Bootstrap, composting reduces wastefulness, saves landfill space and nurtures the health of soil.
  • Check out a few highlight photos of the event! Take a close look for our special guest visitor as well…
  • Sad you weren’t there? No worries! Check out our event page to grab the Food Waste Tracker we distributed and see how you measure up to Pipeline. We’ll be tackling food waste issues all year long, so stay tuned for more opportunities!
