Housing and Dining Sustainability Advocates


Juliette Nast
Spring 2022

I partnered with the Housing and Dining Sustainability Advocates (HADSA), continuing my position as the Food Literacy & Communications Coordinator. HADSA is a group of students working on sustainability outreach and advocacy in the residence halls and dining halls through peer education initiatives related to energy and water conservation, gardening, plant forward diets, food waste reduction, sustainable food systems, and waste sorting. As the Food Literacy & Communications Coordinator, I was responsible for organizing sustainable food events, running our team’s social media (Links to an external site.), producing weekly newsletter content, and running the communications for our internship. One of the highlights was helping to organize a series of successful Earth Week events showcasing delicious, plant-based food both at the dining commons and at the annual CACS Summit. I am also incredibly proud of all the work I have put into the Dining Digest newsletters, which are published on the Cal Dining websiteLinks to an external site. and feature a staff member, a recipe and sustainable ingredient served in the dining commons, and a HADSA project.
