Street Outreach Tackles the Leftover Dilemma
Yao Yao

Two seniors decided that it was time to act on an issue that had been bothering them since they were were first-year students working part-time for Bryn Mawr Dining Services: the disposal of large quantities of leftovers.

"I hated to see so much food go to waste when I knew that there were people going hungry," says Yao Yao, "but as a first-year student I didn't have a clear picture of what could be done about it."

With the help of the Civic Engagement Office and Dining Services, Yao and Adaobi Kanu have founded Street Outreach, a brand-new student organization already numbering between 30 and 40 members. The group ferries leftovers to Philadelphia's Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission three times a week.
