Students at the Meadowbrook Alternative Program have recovered and donated approximately 3,045 pounds of food for Rock and Wrap It Up – an organization they have been involved with for several years. The local charity strives to use green tactics to recover food and other goods. The recovered items are then given to various groups to help fight poverty.

Students recovered the food, which was prepared but not served, as well as short-dated items, from their school cafeterias. The food they collected provided 2,342 meals and 2,436 pounds of CO2 that was not released into the atmosphere. Additionally, included in the CO2 figure is 2,192 pounds of methane not released into the atmosphere.
