For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, students weighed their food waste and brought in their calculations. This was an eye-opening experience for students to realize how much waste is not getting eaten and going right in the garbage. Before each meal, students set a goal of how much lower their food waste should be. This also allowed them to make smarter food choices when they get meals and not over eat or over stuff thie plate.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are more aware of good food portions and how food waste is not good for the earth. In addition, students are more aware of recycling compost like banana peels and reusable bags or trays
