Goal: Avoid bringing wasteful food
Action: Don't bring it!
Every year the Melons have far too much food in camp. Especially "staples" like peanut butter that call out to you from the aisle of some box store or other saying "buy me, I won't go bad and then you won't go hungry." We Melons call it Panic Butter. Don't buy the Panic Butter.
Instead, think carefully about what you will be eating. Make a shopping list. Ask other Melons what they are bringing. Work together. Bring far less than your original shopping list.
