The inquiry approach for this project will measure research and study how food waste can effectively combat hunger in a Bay Area community, especially among sub-minimum wage or unemployed citizens. The research will address this problem by tracking the average amount of food by pounds in the bins outside a high school cafeteria for two weeks. Quantitative data sampling methods include tracking the meals created, food donated (in pounds), and the CO2 emissions prevented will interpret the results—an experimental working process to halt hunger and food waste near the Bay Area community. Descriptive statistics will determine the mean of all factors tracked. The goal of this project is for the information will be more effective in creating a working measurement of food waste in a Bay Area high school.
