STEM Careers Coalition: Waste Not

How can we reduce food waste in our school?

Students think more critically about the negative impacts of food waste on the Earth by focusing on their own lives and communities. They will analyze the food waste that their class produces, then design and implement a plan to reduce, reuse, or recycle their waste effectively.
