Mercyhurst University - spring update

26 Mar 2014 9:41 AM | Anonymous
Mercyhurst hasn't had much progress this winter leading into spring relating to Food Recovery. We had started leftover food collection with our dining services through catering; however because of how well they do with re-using food without wasting, there hasn't been much collection. So, instead, our Service Learning department has been reaching out to local restaurants including Little Caesar and Tim Horton about possibly working with them on a Food Recovery program. Will keep you updated on how that goes. As far as composting, due to the awful cold, our composters have been frozen since Christmas and we are hoping that we can get everything thawed and broken up by the second week of April so we can at least start collecting some food waste before graduate.
