Back to End Food Waste in East Boston

End Food Waste in East Boston

NEWMOA collaborated with Maverick Landing Community Services (MLCS) in East Boston to help them promote food recovery and food waste reduction strategies for their residents. The Project team developed a series of workshops for the MLCS youth workers focusing on the importance of food recovery, the intersectionality of food recovery with environmental and food justice, the impacts of climate change and food system, and how wasted food contributes to climate change. The Project team and MLCS youth hosted an end-of-project “A Celebration of Food and Building Community” event for the residents of Maverick Landing and the greater East Boston community. The Project team also worked with the management of the housing development to offer food waste segregation and composting services for the residents.

This Project was funded by a Healthy Communities Grant from EPA Region 1.
