Student volunteers on their way to deliver leftover food from SUNY-Cortland dining outlets to the local Loaves & Fishes food recovery organization, which will use it to serve area needy.

SUNY Cortland goes to the max to minimize waste

From food donation to trayless dining, composting and recycling, the university goes all out to reduce what goes into landfills.

At the end of each day, food exits the confines of the State University of New York (SUNY) at Cortland and heads for the local Loaves & Fishes collection center for dispensing to those in need in the surrounding community. The food is leftovers collected by the onsite Dunkin’ Donuts staff and delivered by members of various student clubs such as Sociology and Anthropology and NYPIRG (New York Public Interest Research Group).
