Prevent Wasted Food in Campus Dining

We will discuss tools and strategies used by colleges and universities to prevent wasted food in campus kitchens and dining areas. Reducing wasted food can help your campus meet sustainability goals while also saving money on dining service operations.

Staff, faculty, and students involved in waste reduction on their campuses are encouraged to attend RecyclingWorks C&U Forums. The forum on May 4 will be particularly useful for anyone involved in dining service operations.
