Forestdale School in Malden, MA
In March of 2015, I sent the following email to Food Rescue.
I was listening to NPR radio, and I heard about your organization and I thought that my school may be able to contribute to the food rescue, as it bothers me how much food is thrown away. ( I rescue unopen milk and fruit and place them back into the kitchen during my lunch duty time.) So I decided to send you an email and inquire how to get started or if we qualify, as I am not sure of the set up.
By the end of the school year, I was able to send Food Rescue this report.
Our Forestdale school in Malden MA, started Food Rescue on April 10th 2017. So far we have rescued up to 2,150 food items and recycled 279 food containers. We bring our rescued food to Bread of Life center or the Teen Center in Malden. We hope to restart the program in the fall. This has been a rewarding project for me and all who participate in it.
