   Salad Bar > Dining Hall, Students Gear Up for Sustainability
This week, each diner at Hunt Dining Hall made a conscious decision to ask for a second helping. The goal was to make students, faculty, and staff aware of the high cost of food, the amount of food they eat, and the amount of food they waste. Dining Services staff hopes that the results will lead to permanent changes in the meal plan at Baldwin.
