The students featured were wonderful to work with and so excited to talk about K-12 Food Rescue! Every student featured is active in their K-12 Food Rescue program. They were thrilled to share their story with other schools with the hope that more kids could take part of this movement. One of the students told me he loves to work with K-12 Food Rescue because family members struggle with food insecurity and it is a good feeling to know the food saved at school is going to help them eat.
At the end of the day, this is why we do what we do. We want to change the way kids look at food waste and hunger. We want to teach them that no matter what their situation may be, there is always a way to help someone else. It is always possible to change the world. There is no shame in having leftover food in schools. The shame is throwing it away and with it the teachable moments which can literally change the trajectory of a child’s life.
So, take a look at the video and let us know what you think. Please share it as much as you can! Let’s get this in front of school decision makers all over the country! Join the Food Rescue Revolution--you too can be a Food Rescue Warrior!
