Like many schools, Trinity seeks to be a zero waste school, and through our work with FLIK Dining Services, we have robust recycling and composting programs.
In addition, Trinity’s innovative approach to reducing food waste includes BOUNTY: Trinity’s Food Donation Program. Through BOUNTY, we donate meals weekly to the DeHostos Community Center and monthly community dinners in partnership with Advent Church.
In the 2019-2020 school year, we piloted BOUNTY: HOME, a home meal delivery program. As a class, the 10th grade will be leading this initiative to provide weekly meals to homebound residents living across the street from Trinity at the Sondra Thomas House, part of the New York City Housing Authority’s subsidized housing for the elderly.
In the 2019-2020 school year, Trinity donated almost 4500 meals.
