I am SO thrilled to see the proposed project! During the past several years, my research has focused on sustainable food systems, food waste, and food insecurity. My research team has really been grateful to UMD Dining Service for their support and partnership. MD dining team is ideally positioned to work with many key stakeholders including faculty, students, and community partners at multiple levels. Allison is such a committed person. When she agrees to accomplish a task, she finds a way to get it done. I am strongly confident that UMD team will make great strides in tacking many food system issues!
