Organization Mission:

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

Description:

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.
