The goal of this IQP was to assess WPI’s food waste management system and to provide a foundation for future food waste reduction with recommendations. We investigated food waste and interviewed people involved with food waste at WPI and other universities. Then we mapped the waste streams at WPI’s food locations from source to destination. We found significant gaps in WPI’s food waste management system and provided recommendations for improving the Campus Center system and filling the remaining gaps.
