More to come on these incredible student leaders making a difference in their school and inspiring others to follow their lead.
There are always some hurdles to cross when starting a Share Table or K-12 Food Rescue program in your school district. At no cost, Food Rescue provides one on one sessions or group conference calls to review our online educational resources to all who inquire. Often teachers, parents, cafeteria managers, or other school administrators are able to leverage their knowledge through geographically specific presentations to inspire those in their district or surrounding counties to adopt K-12 Food Rescue Policies in their buildings.
Elaine Fiorie is a Sustainabiliy Educator at Beachside Montessori Elementary in Broward County Florida. Follow her journey and view her presentation that is empowering students to lead the #FoodIsNotTrash movement in Florida.
