It is considered to be a threat to a healthy environment with all the resources people use to create the food such as land and trees.

The amount of food that is wasted in the United States is about 30 to 40 percent according to the USDA’s Economic Research Service. This is the type of problem is also present even here on campus.

Growing up in a household with two brothers, sisterhood has always been something I wanted. I’m my mom’s only girl, so I’ve wanted to have a strong bond with someone I could call “sister.” Sisterhood is important, whether blood related or not.
