The neighbors of the Cedar Mountain Canteen, Cedar Mountain Fire and Rescue, have voted to move to being a zero-waste organization! We were beyond words when they shared the news!

They fed 120 people and have almost no waste! What a great start. It is so wonderful to have another organization to work with.
