Great K-12 Food Rescue student leaders at IPS William McKinley School 39. Thanks to Sharon Sellers for submitting these photos of students receiving their K-12 Food Rescue certificates of student leadership and #FoodIsNotTrash T shirts!
You have entered nearly 8 million food items into the tracking tool. Just a reminder that the Food Rescue Tracking Tool allows one time "catch up" entries. If you have fallen behind entering the data and want to enter it for any portion of the year, you can make a one time entry to catch up.
If you have lost your link, reply to this email and we will forward it to you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally, if you know your estimated number of rescued food items his semester, that can be entered as well. For example: 90 school days X 40 estimated items per day = 3,600 food items rescued. Just enter 3,600 items then "submit" and the entry is complete!
There is also a feature on our live impact dashboard that allows you to see the total for your school since you started using the tool, similar to the image below. Just find your school then adjust the date ranges, and the tool will produce your individual graphic at this link.
Thanks so much for leading K-12 Food Rescue!
Food Rescue Executive Director
A few years ago, one student, Aaron Valdes, in Miami Dade County Florida started a K-12 Food Rescue program, and became a K-12 Food Rescue National Student Leader.
Check out what his leadership accomplished!. Students can change the world!
“Being a Food Rescue leader means a lot to me. Because I know with my help and leadership what we as a Daniel Webster Family do not eat, someone else will. To me, being a food recovery leader means that I have a responsibility. Something to look forward to; and knowing that if I get in trouble that I’m not being a good leader. No matter what I’m being a leader of, it’s still being a leader.
I think Food Rescue is important because what our Daniel Webster family doesn’t eat other families will. What we offer people may not get used anywhere else. In any case, I think anything involving helping others get what they may not be able to get on their own is important.”
