Does the institution donate leftover or surplus food?:

A brief description of the food donation program:

Every day about 20 portions of the buffet left-over’s go to feed University night workers. Additionally every week we estimate that 80 portions from the Buffet in Via Bonita are not consumed. These portions are properly packed and frozen and await pick up from Fundación Reina de Quito, which serves underprivileged children. When the Non-profit comes the University cooks fresh rice due to the fact that rice cannot be frozen.

The other product which has left over’s is bread. Internal policy for the bakery asks for continuous production of bread. The following is done:
• 1/3 of whole wheat and sweet breads are given to “Fundación Ocaso Feliz”
• 1/3 is given to kitchen staff in the morning with coffee in order to ensure everyone has had breakfast. This provides for around 100 people each day.
• 1/3 is made into breadcrumbs for cooking.
