Truman Recognized as Member of Food Recovery Challenge

The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 has recognized Truman as a collegiate member of its Food Recovery Challenge (FRC), a national initiative aimed at encouraging businesses, organizations and institutions to actively participate in food waste prevention, surplus food donation and food waste recycling activities.

The FRC encourages organizations to find better alternatives to throwing food away. It helps organizations learn to practice leaner purchasing and divert surplus food away from landfills to hunger-relief organizations and onto the tables of those in need in the community. It also diverts suitable food scraps for composting or animal feed.

Truman joins 18 other institutions already participating in the FRC in Region 7, which spans Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
