Yesterday, there was a meeting to discuss how the Virginia Beach Public Schools could help combat food insecurity in our community.  Shannon Kane from VB gov, David Richards of We Feed, and administrators from the school system came together to discuss how to take action.  Preliminary steps were made in formulating a coherent plan for the year.  As it stands, the elementary school kids will spend a few months recording food waste in the school.  These data points will then be handed to the high schoolers in their government class to discuss and formulate an action plan for how to change congress' stance on disposing prepared food.  The best of these plans will be submitted to a panel of judges to determine who wins a prize!
