Waste less, eat more: 27J’s food share program cuts down cafeteria waste at schools

-A A +A
By Andrea Tritschler

Sometimes kids get food in their school-sponsored lunches that they don’t like.

Instead of throwing the food away, they now have the option to share it. 

School District 27J in Brighton and Reunion has been running its food share program for a few weeks. It aims to cut down food waste in school cafeterias. About 40 percent of all food produced in the United States is wasted, that’s enough food to fill a 90,000 seat football stadium, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
