School Food Waste Resources

"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference." 

Jane Goodall 

Every day in Franklin County, nearly a million tons of food enters the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill. SWACO is on a mission to cut food waste in half by 2030 and working with schools is one of the ways we plan to get there.

SWACO’s food waste resources were developed to provide teachers, students, and administrators with a variety of activities and tools for implementing food waste reduction programs and habits both at school and at home. The resources are geared toward outreach and education to build awareness and motivate users to take action. Check out SWACO’s school recycling resources as well!
