The Plate Project:
The Plate Project began in spring of 2017 by collecting stories revolving around food insecurity from students, faculty and staff across campus. The second phase of the project was carried out during the 2017 fall semester. This phase involved a sociology class doing a study on food insecurity at BW in order to provide statistics related to the topic. The results show that food insecurity has affected 27 percent of BW students. The third phase of The Plate Project will focus on finding and implementing potential solutions to help combat food insecurity at BW. Baldwin Wallace's Dr. Lisa Green and student Wyndi Moore's efforts in addressing food insecurity through The Plate Project and other service opportunities have received statewide recognition through Ohio Campus Compact (OCC).
