March Student Profile: Elle Crevits and Food Not Waste

Elle Crevits

Growing up on a small farm in Delhi, Ontario, food has always been close to Elle Crevits’ heart. But it wasn’t until her fourth year research seminar class in Peace and Conflict Studies that she really discovered what that meant.

Last fall, Elle devoted her final research paper to the topic of food waste and how we could reduce it.

My research triggered this overwhelming need for a solution to this problem, because we waste 40 percent of our food between farm and fork.
