What does being a food recovery leader mean to you?
“To be kind, nice, and to help people you do not know. It helps us not be wasteful and to help people that do not have that much.” – Myra (4th grade)
Why do you think it is important to recover food extras?
“I think it is important to recover food extras because if the students are not going to eat it we can then give it to some one else to enjoy.” – Devin (8th grade)
Sydney Dressler is the Office Assistant & Food Pantry Coordinator at Daniel Webster. She leads the fine K-12 Food Rescue student leaders!
K-12 Food Rescue has been a tremendous coach and resource for our food recovery and donation effort in Mamaroneck School District in New York! Their advice to focus on unpeeled fruit and unopened, packaged food items helped us to to start our program in a practical and manageable way. We are still trying to make full use of Food Rescue’s amazing infographic tool and other resources, and we’re so grateful for all the resources and continuing support Food Rescue provides to our evolving food rescue/recovery and donation efforts!
