Sustainability

Flik, in conjunction with the Academy’s recycling policies, has numerous initiatives underway relating to sustainability. 

  • Dining Services launched a sustainable seafood program that shifts seafood purchases away from threatened fish species and toward sustainable sourced supplies to support the health of our oceans. More information can be found at the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch website.
  • Milton Academy’s Dining Service is now 100% trans-fat free (higher then federal standard).
  • An estimated 15-20% of all Academy produce comes from local or regional farms, a remarkable achievement considering Milton primarily operates during the winter months.
  • Flik uses only cage-free eggs.
  • Forbes Dining Hall became trayless in 2009
  • Single-stream recycling
  • Currently transitioning to become bottled water free

In 2007, Milton completed renovations of the Forbes Kitchen (Dining Services main cooking kitchen). This kitchen is far more energy and resource efficient, including: energy efficient dish machines, HVAC systems and a motion sensor light system. Members of Dining Services participate on Milton Academy’s Sustainability Committee, helping to guide environmental and social responsibility.
