Food Waste Recycling and Edible Food Recovery in our Schools (WasteExpo 2023)

June 15, 2023

The EPA estimates that about 1 in 12 of our children are food insecure, and yet one-third of the typical school’s waste stream is food. This disconnect leads to a lot of wasted food, and money. We will share real life examples and strategies of setting up food waste recycling, and edible food recovery programs at some of the nation’s largest and most prominent school districts. Attendees will learn strategies to implement food waste recycling in schools.
