JUNIATA COLLEGE - Sodexo - Huntingdon, Pa

Sodexo at Juniata College currently uses the LeanPath system to track our food waste.  We are able to separte our pre-consumer waste from post-consumer which will allow us to create a "Weigh the Waste" promotion in the fall semester to coincide with other initiatives on campus.  We also provide reusable clamshells to students.  Historically, it wasn't popular, but a student group, Environmental Coalition, chose to build a promotion around it and participation has doubled.  They are suggesting to college administration that each incoming Freshman should recieve a clamshell as part of the welcome package, which we think could be a great start to creating a culture of sustainability on campus.

The College has recently begun composting using the waste that goes through the pulper.  We do not have any measurments on this to share yet.

We have recently hooked up with a chruch sponsored soup kitchen here in town.  So far we have donated approximately 200lbs and the relationship is progressing very well.
