Successful Pilot Project Leads To Deployment Of School Food Waste Program

October 14, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A pilot project conducted by foodservice giant Sodexo and partners in France, Italy, and the U.K., led to a 12 percent food waste reduction in six schools. The program kept 2.5 tons of food waste, or 4,500 meals, out of landfills. Sodexo said it would now deploy the International Food Waste Coalition’s “Skool” program in company sites, including school cafeterias, across Europe. Skool’s goal is to build a school food value chain without food waste, the company says. Sodexo and the IFWC partnered with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and LeanPath, a food waste measurement and reporting system, to create the Skool program.
