Launching a Food Waste Action Movement in Public Schools

Thursday, October 20, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Online Event – Students take you on their journey to create a waste-conscious public school system and advocate for new food waste legislation. Three years ago, students in Montgomery County Public Schools started the first efforts to compost food waste in Maryland. We will share our progress and offer how stewards in other jurisdictions can launch a 3-pronged movement to tangibly reduce waste, educate students, families, and decision makers, and directly influence legislation.
Presented by: Maryland Coalition to Re-Imagine School Waste, Manna’s Community Food Rescue, Montgomery County Public Schools, and Rise N Shine Foundation.
