Volunteers from the Lazarus House pick up boxes and bags filled with food from the Wetherbee School.

On Tuesday, October 10, volunteers from the Lazarus House community organization came to the Wetherbee School and presented information to the students about reducing food waste and creating a more sustainable environment through the donation of excess cafeteria food to help feed the needy. The Lazarus House of Lawrence provides food, clothing, shelter, and job training for those in need. 

 

Students learned what types of foods can be saved from their daily meals and donated to the Lazarus House organization. This includes: milk/water, packaged veggies, packaged cookies/crackers, cheese sticks, and fruit. Students have already filled BOXES with cartons of unopened milk, packages of carrots, and fresh fruit. Keep making good choices and supporting your community, Wetherbee students!
