In an effort to combat food waste at the end of the Spring 2018 Semester, FIE Staff banded together to collect and sort all food left in the student kitchens. All unopened items in London and Dublin were donated to a food bank, while opened items in London were used as inspiration and ingredients for a community charitable meal cooked by resident Le Cordon Bleu trained chef Dr. Julie Andreshak-Behrman.
