Wicked Local Framingham reported in September on Framingham State University’s food donation program. Meghan Skeehan, a graduate student in food and nutrition, founded a Food Recovery Network chapter at the school in 2013. The university has since donated about 2,500 pounds of food from the dining hall to local homeless shelters and food pantries. Most food scraps that are not donated are pulverized, dehydrated and composted.
RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts has provided technical assistance to Framingham State to increase diversion of their food scraps. To speak to a recycling expert about increasing waste diversion at your business, call our hotline: (888) 254-5525 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
