The DMS Green Team will build a compost bin, begin collecting food waste from the cafeteria, place the food waste (along with dried leaves and grass) in the bin, work the piles of waste until it becomes compost, and then apply the compost to our vegetable and native plant gardens. Students will track the amount of food waste coming from the cafeteria to the compost bin, measure the volume and temperature during the composting process, then be a part of applying the compost to the gardens.

We plan to educate 150-175 people who will be invited to attend the nutrition seminars at the after school program. This will include parents, staff and students, many who do not qualify for assistance. Our success will be 150 bags distributed to serve an estimated 300-325 people.

We will be measuring the amount of compost that is produced every week and track the usage of compost over time. We also hope to survey students on whether they actually use the composting bins that we have implemented. Finally, as a last measure, we will do soil testing through our AP Environmental Science class to see whether the composting regions are more nutrient rich.

Our project is aimed to educate the students in the College of Lake County on how to be more conscious when they are eating. For our project we used a prize wheel and put different diets in each slot such as pescatarian, flexitarian etc. When a student spun the wheel we had them give us the definition for the diet that they landed on and than had them guess how big that diets carbon footprint is. After we told them what the carbon footprint for that diet was and we told them how you can cut down on your carbon footprint such as cutting back on meat, buying from local organic farmers.

We will map where the ingredients for a typical cooking class comes from. We will calculate the miles and illustrate their trip on our map. We will then identify farmers from our local farmer's market that could supply these ingredients. We will calculate these miles and compare with the original ingredients. Using our grant money, we will start supporting these local farmers and sourcing our ingredients from them.

• The NMU Cat Packs program strives to reduce childhood hunger in the Marquette area by providing North Star students healthy meals over the weekends and holidays. North Star Academy’s students live in Marquette, Negaunee, Ishpeming, Gwinn, Munising, and KI Sawyer. Some of these areas, particularly Gwinn and KI Sawyer, are considered food deserts, or geographical areas where affordable and nutrient dense foods are difficult to obtain. Food deserts are particularly impactful for community members who do not have access to an automobile. Students who have received Cat Packs have stated that the healthy food packages over the weekend help to reduce their hunger-related anxiety. Having their basic needs met allows kids to focus more on their academic and personal development goals. This is especially important as diet is linked to one’s learning capacities, concentration, attention span, sleeping habits, intelligence, and psychological behaviors. We are working on obtaining continued funding and in-kind food donations through soliciting location businesses, granting foundations and large corporations.
