During the COVID-19 pandemic, many students have expressed concerns over food waste on campus. [1]

This has also been a concern because compost was suspended.

Pre-pandemic, EcoReps hosted monthly plate scraping events at John Jay Dining Hall, where students were incentivized to not waste food. Students scrape their food into a compost bin after eating, and if they do not have any food waste, they are entered into a drawing to win 25 Dining Dollars.
