How is food waste handled in the university?

Caroline Ford made this Freedom of Information request to Roehampton University

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Roehampton University,

I'm interested in food waste in the university. Is food waste handled as part of your waste management contract? How much cooked food is disposed of? Do you work with charity partners or similar to give away unwanted cooked food?

Could I get a copy of any policies you have on waste or sustainability?

Yours faithfully,

Caroline Ford

FOI, Roehampton University
