Recycle food waste

Did you know 40% of the food grown in the United States is wasted, yet 48 million people living here don't have enough food to eat?  
The wellness team is embarking on a challenge to raise awareness about food waste with our students, and challenge them to change their behavior to help solve the problem. Check out a video the students made to raise awareness.

 This initiative will take place in the cafeteria during the week of April 24th.  We will weigh the food waste everyday in the cafeteria and see if, as a school, we can reduce our pounds of food waste!  For the food waste that does still occur, We Compost It will pick it up as usual to turn it back into soil for more food to grow in!
Here are some resources to learn more about food waste
