SAN FRANCISCO (KRNV & – U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today honored the University of Nevada – Reno, the University of Nevada – Las Vegas and 16 other colleges for taking part in the EPA’s national Food Recovery Challenge.

The Food Recovery Challenge is a voluntary program aiming to limit the 34 million tons of food wasted nationwide annually by reducing unnecessary consumption and increasing donations to charity and composting.

By participating, these schools, with a combined 460,000 student enrollment, pledge to reduce food waste by five percent in one year.

“Food waste is a particular problem for California, the world’s fifth largest food supplier, because of the enormous quantities of water and energy required for production,” said Jared Blumenfeld, EPA’s Regional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest.

The schools include: University of California Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Merced, Riverside, San Francisco, Santa Barbara; and Santa Cruz; California State University Fullerton, Humboldt and Northridge; University of Southern California; City College San Francisco; Arizona State University; Northern Arizona University; and University of Arizona.
