Reducing Food Waste in K-12 Schools: Strategies for Prevention, Donation, and Recycling

Loading Events

Did you know that up to 40% of food grown and imported into the U.S. is wasted? This represents an opportunity for schools to implement wasted food management practices that save money, benefit society, build student engagement, and improve the environment.

Join this virtual workshop hosted by the Center for EcoTechnology (CET) to learn about how your school can implement wasted food prevention, donation, and diversion programs. The workshop will highlight, among other strategies, information about separating food scraps for anaerobic digestion, one method to divert food waste while generating energy. We will also share stories of successful programs in local schools.

Participants will leave with an understanding of the next steps for building wasted food management into their operations and access to digital resources and guidance documents. All attendees will also have access to free one-on-one support from CET.


Please reach out to with any questions.

You can find complete details in the event registration form. We will be sharing a final agenda and list of speakers with registered attendees prior to the event.

This workshop is made possible by funding from EPA’s Supporting Anaerobic Digestion in Communities Grant.
