Food Waste Warrior Report 2019

In the spring of 2019, WWF, with support from The Kroger Co. Foundation and the U.S. EPA, looked at post-service food waste in 46 schools in nine US cities across eight states. We worked with partners on the ground to share the experiential Food Waste Warrior conservation curriculum: running audits in cafeterias and guiding students to connect the dots between food, waste, natural resources, and wildlife. While not a representative sample of the 100,000 schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program, this research represents one of the largest school waste audit samples collected to date.
