Plate Scrapes in Eickhoff to Highlight Food Waste: 11/18 and 11/20

On Tuesday, November 18th, and Thursday, November 20th, Bonner Scholars will be conducting plate scrapes in Eickhoff Dining Hall to highlight the amount of wasted food that gets thrown away each day by students at TCNJ.

If you’re eating in Eickhoff, be sure to say hello to the Bonner Scholars at the dish return!
