Title: Best Practices for Food Recovery and Gleaning in the National School Lunch Program: SY 1998-1999

URL: http://www.fns.usda.gov/fdd/gleaning/gleanman.PDF

Abstract: This manual describes how the school districts used USDA grant funds to recover food from their cafeterias and donate it to the needy. Includes information on systems to recover, store, and donate the recovered food and how schools formed partnerships with local non-profit agencies. It also illustrates how school districts were able to identify and overcome obstacles to developing their programs. Finally, it shows how students can take an active role in this effort, and how food recovery and gleaning can be integrated into a school’s curriculum. (PDF Format; Length: 29 pages)
