Students start Share Table idea at CMS

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 by SAMANTHA ANDERSON in School

Catasauqua Middle School fifth-grade student Maliya Walp saw an opportunity to help reduce the amount of food tossed out at CMS. At breakfast and lunch, students must select from at least three of the food groups — meats and proteins, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and milk. One item must be a fruit or vegetable. In order to take the minimum number of items to create a student meal, a student may be required to select a food he or she will not eat.
