RU Green? Food-waste Revealed

RU Green? This month we will continue to post about food; healthy menu ideas and tips to reduce food waste. By sharing nutritious food facts we hope to contribute to the health of our Roeper community and take the concepts of reduce, reuse, recycle to new levels.

For instance, did you know 40% of our trash (in the school cafeteria and at home) is food? Help facilitate eating by peeling oranges. Check out “how to peel an orange in 23 seconds” video. Slice apples and soak in pineapple juice to prevent browning. By making it easy, your child is more apt to eat healthy “green light” fruits and veggies. Good luck! -the Sustainability Committee.
