Food Waste Reduction Whitepaper
According to the data, we estimate that K-12 students in Iowa tossed over 150,000 pounds of food and beverage waste every school day during breakfast and lunch in the 2018-2019 school year. Moreover, Iowa’s K-12 students tossed nearly 30 million pounds of food and beverage waste in 2018-2019 (based on 180 day school year) with the majority of this ending up in the landfill.
We have released a new whitepaper detailing food waste at K-12 schools in rural Iowa.
The whitepaper analyzes data we've collected over the last five years of providing direct assistance to K-12 schools across the state in the fight against food waste.
