Food regularly wasted at school lunches

PREV
NEXT

I am writing about the waste of school lunches. I am wondering if people know about this waste of food, especially fruit.

School lunches throughout New York State cost more than $2. It is required to take one fruit per lunch, and it is rarely eaten so they just throw it out.

With so many hungry people, this is a total waste of valuable food. Who can I contact to inform about this waste?

There should be options. If the food continues to be wasted, this should not be required and the extra food should go to the hungry people.
