Madingley Hall wins Environmental Award
Madingley Hall, home to the Institute of Continuing Education, has won a Silver Award at the 2014 University of Cambridge Catering Managers Committee (CMC) Environmental Awards.
Now in their 4th year, the CMC Awards help to promote environmental and ethical awareness across Cambridge College catering departments, encouraging more sustainable activities.
The competition was judged by Cambridge Carbon Footprint and Transition Cambridge, and the awards were presented at a special ceremony at Trinity Hall on 21 October.
Some of the ethical and environmental practices now in place at the Hall include:
- Regular vegan dishes
- Seasonal menus, with widespread local and seasonal food sourcing
- A wider range of practices developed to avoid food waste
Ian Hardwick, Hall Operations Manager said: "We won a Bronze Award in 2013 so this improvement shows a real commitment to environmental and ethical issues from the Catering Team and across the Hall Operation."
