School Food Share

School Food Share allows schools and food banks to work together to collect whole, packaged, uneaten cafeteria leftovers and share it within their community. An average school throws away over 100 lbs. of recoverable food per week. This program helps schools use the food to first feed their own students, and second, donate remaining food to their local food bank to fight food insecurity in the community. EPA’s Region 10 office in Seattle, WA is creating a replicable model for school food recovery. Full Circle supports all aspects of continued program design and implementation, including operational support and policy development.
