Does the institution donate leftover or surplus food?:

A brief description of the food donation program:

Utah State University donates food to two local food banks on a daily and weekly basis. Dining Services took a daily average of 300lbs of food waste to the landfill. Concerned with the food that would normally go to waste, Dining Services has taken it upon themselves to donate their leftover foods to the S.N.A.C. department (Student Nutrition Access Center) and the Cache Valley Food Pantry. The Cache Valley Food Pantry serves more than 400 families in the county as well as many of the local Senior Centers.
