    Food Safety at Temporary Events in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    (2022-06) Schuldt, Sadie
    This capstone project provides a total of eight detailed training presentations focused on educating food vendors on the importance of food safety and the regulations associated with selling food at temporary events in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The training presentations allow operators and food vendors the ability to watch, pause, and rewatch as needed. The final presentation shows the importance of food safety while examining violation and compliance data compiled from 2018, 2019, and 2021 in Milwaukee. The capstone accomplishes providing educational outreach and reducing violations related to food safety at temporary events. Future studies will include this to be evaluated by showing the trainings to operators, and providing them with a pre and post knowledge survey. The survey data will be used to update material as needed. This capstone will contribute as the framework for an improved temporary event operator/vendor training program offered by the Milwaukee Health Department.

    Dialed Up: The Economics of Sustainable Farming
    (2021) Paulson, Elleni
    This podcast, called Dialed Up, is an assessment of the economics of sustainable farming. The podcast and associated materials assess two of the largest economic incentives driving farmers to adopt sustainable farming practices: crop insurance and carbon markets. These topics are explored across 9 episodes. The podcast, aimed for consumer audiences and those invested in sustainability and sourcing for CPG and food companies, provokes an in-depth analysis of one aspect of food systems and how that factor affects — and is affected by — the rest of the system. Understanding sustainability from an economic standpoint, and through both private organizations and government organizations (for both carbon markets and crop insurance providers) allows us to develop a more solid understanding of our food systems, and how together we can build more effective, inclusive, equitable and integrated food systems in the future.
