The Illinois Food Scrap Coalition (IFSC) is a dedicated to advancing food scrap composting in Illinois through program implementation, policy and advocacy.
Roosevelt University is proud to announce its Gold Partnership with the IFSC. As such, the university demonstrates the highest level commitment to food scrap diversion by composting both pre-consumer and post-consumer food scraps. Additionally, it strives to analyze supply vs. waste and continuously adjust its waste reduction methods accordingly.
The above graphic shows how RU’s partnership with the Chicago-based Resource Center recycles food waste from the Chicago Campus Dining Center into soil that is then used at the RUrbanPioneers community garden at the Schaumburg Campus and in the Wabash Building’s rooftop gardens at the Chicago Campus.
