The purpose of this directed project was to develop a sustainable food waste management curriculum to reduce waste in landfills and to alleviate food insecurity within Los Angeles County. The goals of this curriculum were to reduce food waste in landfills, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions from methane production during food decomposition and providing cleaner air quality for areas around landfills, and to link excess food with the hungry and food insecure in Los Angeles County.
The curriculum was created addressing perceived barriers of establishing a long-term, sustainable waste management program, tailored for foodservice operations in Los Angeles County.
The curriculum consists of six sessions relating to topics discussed in the literature reviews. An expert-review panel assessed the literature review, evaluated the curriculum content, and provided feedback. Evaluation forms for the curriculum were created to assess the efficacy and value of the program.
