Aramark

ARAMARK, a leader in food services and facilities management, has teamed up with SCA to offer young professionals a broad spectrum of hands-on Sustainability Internships at universities, K-12 schools, businesses, hospitals, sports stadiums and national park sites nationwide, and a few select international locations. The Sustainability Internship program is designed to meet a growing need for employees who have a practical understanding of sustainability integrating with fundamental business knowledge.

Leveraging our long standing expertise in recruiting and hiring environmental interns for federal agencies and non-profit organizations, SCA helps identify and train applicants who are seeking opportunities that combine their education with their passion for the environment and demonstrate strong conservation leadership. The program builds an important bridge between business and the environment, while creating career opportunities, advancing skills and career pathways.

To celebrate Earth Day, ARAMARK employees have joined SCA volunteers in hands-on conservation service projects that benefit communities in cities across the country, including Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Oakland, CA, Pittsburgh, Seattle, and Washington, DC. Projects include turning empty lots into community gardens or neighborhood parks; planting native plants,  removing invasive plants and trees and installing rain barrel irrigation systems. “By joining forces with SCA volunteers, ARAMARK employees are further demonstrating our commitment to enhance the environment and communities where we live and work,” says Chris Stemen, Senior Director, Sustainability, ARAMARK Higher Education. “SCA’s service projects are a natural extension of our day-to-day operational commitment to environmental stewardship.”

Most of my time at my SCA internship was spent working with and improving the projects I discussed with you guys in my last blog: food waste management, electrical use reduction. I spent some of my extra time looking for what low hanging fruit I could address regarding other aspects of sustainability on site. The longer I was at the site, the more comfortable with and more confident in my role as a sustainability intern I became.

Among the waste reduction projects I worked on at Zephyr Cove, my favorite was working on food waste. I knew I would be working with food waste reduction before I came here; it’s one of the things that attracted me to the position. When I got here, I learned that the site has a food management process that’s used at all ARAMARK sites; the program has a strong emphasis on reducing un-needed waste.
