Bronchos, we would like to introduce you to the Broncho Bites program. What is Bronchos Bites you may ask? Broncho Bites is a new food recovery program, just kicked off on October 24, 2022, that is meant to reduce food waste on campus. Any food that is left over from Ayers Kitchen, Central’s main dining facility, is being repackaged and rerouted to the Broncho Bites refrigerator located outside the Central Pantry, Nigh University room 151
This program is a project of the Central Oklahoma Sustainability Collaborative, and is being funded by Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality. All UCO students, faculty, and staff can pick up a meal in compostable packaging to take with them on the move. Students can swipe their UCO ID at the refrigerator to get STLR credit in the Health & Wellness tenet.
Unclaimed meals are placed in a compost bin provided by Fertile Ground Coop, right outside the Pantry at the NUC docks. The campus community can also drop off their food waste with this new service.
