August Meeting
Presentation: "Getting Technical Assistance"
Video only includes the presenation on Technical Assistance: Luke Wolfgang of the EPA talks about how to get help with any aspect of the Challenge.  In essence, if you get stuck, this is a good place to start.  Luke discusses who to turn to for help, EPA available resources and takes a look at the Food Recovery Challenge on EPA's ReTrac Wastewise site.
Conference method: Adobe Connect meeting with video.  Available for playback at the link below...

June Meeting  Presentation: Finding Your Baseline
Most of the Meeting was recorded, including the monthly check-ins from participating schools.  A key first step in starting the Challenge is establishing a baseline.  Those with questions about how to do that will want to see the EPA Presentation on "Finding Your Baseline" which begins approximately 10:27 into the recording.

4 schools in the Challenge
The initial call/webinar for the PA Higher Education Food Recovery Challenge. A good mix of interested schools and schools already committed to the Challenge were in attendance. We had speakers from "first joiners" Mercyhurst and Messiah. We heard a bit of background on the Challenge and Luke Wolfgang of the EPA spoke a little bit about using the software to report.
