Great Efforts in Guilford County, NC
We are so thrilled about the success of our School Wrap program in the Guilford County, North Carolina schools. Take a look at the video showing it in action. Thanks to all the great folks who are making a tremendous impact in helping to feed those in need in that North Carolina county.
Since 1997, over 200 schools nation-wide have started Rock and Wrap it Up! School and Snack Wrap! Programs to empower administration and students to recover food and other assets from their schools. We identify and vet agencies that are in the position to recover food and assets. Increase food recovery potential by introduction of the Whole Earth Calculator and lesson plans.
2017 Update - We have increased our programs dramatically. We now have in TN and NC alone 17 and 50 schools respectively. We met with the University of Colorado and they will look to increase food recovery at school to go along with the food recovered at football and basketball games. We have finished our newest series of Lesson plans for 7-12 grade, the Whole Earth Calculator Climate Literacy Lesson Plans. Aerosmith is the first band to allow their name and food recovery totals to appear in the lesson plans. We have also introduced these plans to the Science Advisor to the White House as well as the EPA and USDA.
