The Environmental Center’s Second Local Challenge Kicks off May 11th!
You can join in the challenge that goes from May 11–June 7, 2020. Participants will be entered to win weekly prize drawings that help prevent wasted food, such as glass food-storage containers and reusable beeswax food wraps, plus a $100 gift card to the grocery store of choice. Two grand prize drawings for $250 in farm bucks to a local farm will be awarded to those who complete the whole challenge. Participants will also gain knowledge and feel good about making changes in their own lives to help their greater community.
The challenge asks participating households to weigh or measure then record their cumulative wasted food weekly for four weeks. They will track what ends up as waste in their home, then learn small yet impactful tips to change habits in order to produce less waste.
The Rethink Food Waste Challenge is made possible through a partnership with Deschutes County Department of Solid Waste and our local garbage and recycling service providers. To learn more about the challenge and sign up visit their website:
