Sample Projects: Tap and Stack & Share Tables 

  • Tap and Stack: Reduce lunchroom waste by asking students and adults to "tap" food off of disposable trays and stack them in a neat pile. Stacked trays require a fraction of the space in the trash bag! 
  • Share Table: Students place specific food and beverage items that they choose not to consume on a designated table or cart. This provides an opportunity for other students to take the items at no cost. This strategy, encouraged by the USDA, helps feed hungry children and prevent food waste.
