Using local foods will also stimulate the regional economy. Evaluation can be in use of local foods, dining waste, trayless dining, vegetarian and vegan options, trans-fats, pre-consumer food, waste composting, post-consumer food waste composting, food donation and recycled content products.

The Food Recovery Network is one of the free videos for NACUBO members noted below as part of the "Win Win - Expanding Financial Leadership" series.  Since this video  was published  the amount of campuses involved in the program  has doubled; benefitting waste recovery (costs) at a campus, enriching the lives of those in the community AND creating leadership and organizational skills amoung students participating.


In the web series Expanding Financial Leadership: Facilities, Energy Efficiency and Sustainability there are now five  30-minute videos that will inform participants on how to expand their knowledge base to create a conceptual facilities framework that can impact their campuses for years to come. Videos in the series include:Expanding Financial Leadership: Facilities, Energy Efficiency and SustainabilityTurning Deferred Maintenance Challenges into Savings (January 2016)Bending the Defrred Maintenance Curve - Value of Whole Building Energy Retrofits (December 2016)
