Grant to allow Benedictine University to divert food scraps from landfills
LISLE – Benedictine University has received a $46,000 Food Scrap Composting Revitalization and Advancement Program (F-SCRAP) grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
The grant will allow the school to divert food scraps generated in the Lisle campus cafeteria and other buildings.
“Composting all the food scraps both from consumers and in the kitchen will save methane-producing garbage from going to the landfill and produce top-quality compost for growing plants," said Jean-Marie Kauth, Ph.D. associate professor at Benedictine.
