BCDS was the winner in the category of Waste Management, which according to NACUFS honors institutional members “who minimize waste sent to landfills and wastewater systems by diverting biodegradable waste to compost or other landfill deferred systems and maximizing recycling efforts throughout dining services.”

BCDS’s previous accolades from NACUFS include a Sustainability Gold Award for Education and Outreach in 2018 for its “FRESH to Table” initiative—which promotes local, sustainable food options in New England, with a focus on community awareness and education—and the Loyal E. Horton Dining Award in 2020 for Heights Ramen, a popular campus event that celebrated Japanese culture and cuisine and offered students an immersive dining experience.
