Food to Hog program

  • Mounds View Public Schools, in collaboration with EcoConsilium, recycles our food waste for animal feed instead of sending it to landfills.

    • The Nutrition Services team and students put food scraps into a green waste bin for animal feed, separate from the blue recycling bin and grey garbage bin. Our students have become pros at separating!
    • The food waste is transported to farms and fed to pigs, reducing the quantity of garbage produced by our district.
