Our mission is to maximize the value of food in schools and minimize environmental degradation through education, food recovery, and highest value diversion of food waste.
foodSCAPE is a non-profit dedicated to optimizing the value of food in Rhode Island schools. SCAPE is an acronym for the hierarchy of using the nutrients and energy in our food system. First, Students need access to healthy meals in school. Then the healthy, unopened food that the students don’t consume are distributed to people in need in the Community. Lastly, food that is no longer useable by people can be collected separately for Animal feed, to feed Plants through composting, or to use for Energy production anaerobically.
