Change the World One Leftover at a Time
Hello, we are the 6th grade 2018-2019 shcool year at bridges elementry. As students in 6th grade, we are trying to eleminate food waste between our school and community. The more people that will donate leftovers for compost, is the more compost that we could get to help decrease world hunger. We are also getting resturaunts to collect leftover food at the end of the day, to give to our program, to give to the food banks, that would save multiple lives that are suffering from hunger...
