There is a lot of need and a lot of waste happening at the same time in school lunchrooms. While many kids are still hungry at the end of their lunch hour, pounds of perfectly good food are being tossed out by others.
The solution? School lunch share tables.
Students who are full but still have food remaining, like apples and unopened cartons of milk, can place the unwanted food on the share table. Students who are still hungry can grab whatever they want for free.
Find out how it works and see if your local public school has a share table.
