Title:Educate staff on IL restrictions on provision of food scraps for livestock feed
Subject(s):Green Lunchroom Challenge
Food waste
Food service -- Schools -- Environmental aspects
Abstract:After you have practiced source reduction and diverted any unused edible food to humans for consumption, the next preferable activity on the US EPA Food Recovery Hierarchy is diverting food from landfills for use as animal feed. This can reduce disposal costs for the entity generating the food scraps and reduce costs for farmers by supplementing other forms of feed purchased for their livestock. Some schools in other states have had success in achieving food waste diversion from landfill through sending food scraps for processing into animal feed (often for swine).
