2019 School Food Recovery

School Food Recovery

Where do I begin?

Can be formal or informal. See link for formal. Informal - during lunch,place a cart near the garbage asking students to place unopened and unpeeled items they would normally be throwing away on it. Tally your results. Enter info on foodrescue.net  to learn environmental impact.

Food Waste Audit

Meet with administration, cafeteria manager, volunteers, students and those interested in starting the program to review logistics and plan.

Create your team

Once you've put everything in place, it's time to communicate program to students, parents, faculty and staff. Conduct  a student asembly or review procedures with students on morning announcements.
