Yes

A brief description of the postconsumer food waste composting program:

During the spring semester of 2012, HPU student Nick Needle and Jim DiCarlo of Each One Teach One Farms began a food composting program on campus where they composted nearly 100% of the HPU cafeteria food waste. This was a pilot project to test the viability of large scale food composting using Bokashi composting methods. HPU hopes to continue this food composting project in the coming school year.
