Today is America Recycles Day: Join the SCrAP Project to Limit Food Waste


Join the School Nutrition Foundation in the Fight to Reduce Food Waste

Each year on November 15, millions of people across the United States take part in America Recycles Day, a nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Organizers encourage participants to take the #BeRecycled pledge to reduce the amount of waste they produce.

If you are interested in recycling and care about overall waste reduction, the School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) invites you to participate in the newly launched School Cafeteria Discards Assessment Project (SCrAP). Developed by the Environmental Research & Education Foundation, SCrAP aims to gather information regarding the quantity of waste generated in school cafeterias. The project offers three easy ways to participate, ranging from completing a questionnaire about waste management practices to measuring waste. It’s a great opportunity to involve environmental teams, science clubs, student governments, PTA/PTOs and other school groups.

To learn more about the SCrAP program or sign up to participate at the level that best suits your availability and interest, visit Participants will receive waste-related educational materials, customized snapshot results for your school (Blue and Gold level) and the chance to win funds to support your school.
