Join SCARCE (School and Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education) on September 18 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM CDT for a free webinar on how to start a sharing table at your school.
A sharing table is a system in which uneaten unopened packaged foods or beverages, or unpeeled fruits, may be placed in a central location within a lunchroom by student that do not want them, so that other children may consume these items. This diverts edible material from the waste stream to human consumption. See the related suggested activity from the original Green Lunchroom Challenge program for further information on establishing a sharing table.
In their upcoming webinar, SCARCE will discuss the what, why, and how of starting a sharing table in your cafeteria with real-world examples drawn from their experience working with schools.
