Millersville University

Founded as a teaching college in 1955, Millersville University offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Millersville, PA.

ERC teamed up with Millersville University to revitalize an existing food waste recycling program incepted 10 years ago. The program aligns with the university’s sustainability mission to serve as a unique role model for its communities and train individuals to develop social, economic, and technological solutions that advance sustainability.

Good 'N Plenty

Good ‘N Plenty is a family-style restaurant located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, serving unique Pennsylvania Dutch food. It serves 600-700 customers daily and as many as 2,700 on a holiday. Most of the waste is post-consumer because of the nature of the business. “Once food goes out [to the customers] we must throw what’s left away,” says Jeff Graham, General Manager. Customers would often ask what became of the wasted food.

Franklin & Marshall College

Franklin & Marshall College is an undergraduate liberal arts school in Lancaster, PA.

ERC teamed up with Franklin & Marshall College to create the only food waste recycling program in the region. The program is quickly morphing from a pre-consumer to post-consumer program, growing the school’s environmental sustainability program by leaps and bounds.
