Mindful Waste



Focus Areas:

  • Food Access
  • Nutrition / Food / Gardening Education
  • School Programs / Youth Education

Organization Mission:

Our mission is to eliminate food waste through education, prevention, and recovery.


We help schools eliminate food waste by establishing food recovery programs, so uneaten food is donated to local food pantries. We also provide K-5 lesson plans that focus on the environmental and ethical impacts of food waste. We have recently partnered with Smart Farm of Barrington to create a greenhouse and vermicomposting learning center, where we will host school groups.
