College-campuses around the nation lack affordable grocery stores that are catered for college students. College students often overpay for groceries since prepackaged meat and produce are often too much food for a college student to eat within the span of the expiration date, leading to high amounts of food waste. To reduce this food waste, we introduce PrePlate, a pay-by-the-weight college campus-based grocery store. At PrePlate, students can bring their own containers to buy enough groceries they will need. This will not only reduce food waste, but this will also reduce packaging waste since students will be bringing their own containers. Bring your plate and pay-by-the-weight at PrePlate!
