Our Sustainable Food Practices
As part of CVMC's strategic initiative to GO GREEN, our Nutrition and Food Services staff has worked hard to help CVMC reduce its carbon imprint by implementing the following programs, which have now been in effect since late 2009:
- Food Donations: Each month, CVMC donates about 200 lbs of food to the Food for Salvage program at the Vermont Foodbank.
- Composting: We compost about one and a half tons a month of unusable food waste. Our composting efforts have earned CVMC an award for excellence in composting from Central Vermont Solid Waste District (CVSWD).
- Buying Local: In addition to participating in the Two Rivers Farm to Table program, CVMC buys food products from many local companies.
