ri schools recycling project
Through a Healthy Communities Grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency, we have a two-year initiative to select schools to take the “Get Food Smart, RI” challenge and implement their own programs for reducing, recovering and recycling food waste. We’ll help them assemble “green teams” and provide coaching and training. Our goal is to divert more than 20 tons of wasted food from the Central Landfill, donate 2 tons of perfectly good food to hungry kids and families, and inspire the next generation of environmental leaders.

This free Toolkit provides schools with useful information, resources and best practices for implementing a variety of strategies to reduce, recover and divert food waste away from the landfill.
The Toolkit’s easy-to-use format allows you to jump in and find the strategies that will work for your school.
