Food insecurity is the term used when a person does not know where their next meal will come from. For most of us that is hard to imagine, waking up hungry and having no breakfast available or sitting through a class trying to learn, when all you think about is food. This is the reality for millions of children in our country. According to the U.S department of agriculture, the average person eats between 4-5 pounds of food a day. During the 1st Trimester of school, Cary Academy collected a total weight of 20,170 pounds of compostable items which included; edible food (leftovers on peoples plates and foods that we are unable to serve during future lunches), food disposed of during its preparation (non-edible food scraps) and compostable paper products (napkins, plates, bowls, pizza boxes, etc…).

Why Green Schools are so Important. - Glenn Cook, Editor in Chief, American School Board Journal Green schools are more than buildings.
They are places where children learn the wonders of the world and teachers prepare the next generation of leaders and citizens. These schools are built and operated to be full of clean air and sunlight and to be free of toxic materials and harmful chemicals. Green schools are energy efficient, helping to lower utility costs, conserve resources and reduce waste. Green schools showcase a community's commitment to its children and their future, who in turn learn from an early age the importance and benefits of acting as responsible stewards of their communities and the larger world. New and existing schools can be green schools. Green school /grEn skül / n. a school that creates a healthy environment that is conducive to learning while saving energy, resources and money.
