Faculty Mentor: Kashef Majid


This study attempts to explain both the environmental and community impacts of food banks and help in maximizing their effectiveness. Food banks have a direct impact on greenhouse gasses due to resources put into extra farming and the rotting of spoiled food. This means they act as a last barrier of defense, both providing food to people who need it and minimizing food waste. This project attempts to investigate the categories of donations and spoilage/wasted percentage of donations received at the Fredericksburg Food Bank.
