Food waste and food insecurity are challenges in Kentucky and throughout the United States. A research project conducted by a University of Kentucky undergraduate student shows that a student-led UK program is succeeding in efforts to reduce the rate of both.

Kendra Oo, a UK senior from Myanmar, studied the effectiveness of the summer gleaning program of the Campus Kitchen at the University of Kentucky, a program in the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. It is part of the national Campus Kitchens Project.

The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment will host a talk with Professor Mark Courtney, of the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago (UC), about his research findings over the past 20 years on the transition to adulthood for foster youth in state care in the U.S. The free public lecture will be held 2-2:50 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22, in room 200, of the Funkhouser Building.
