Wayzata Students Host ‘Food for Everyone’
Students in the career readiness program Compass partnered with local organizations to teach people about food waste and food insecurity at an event on Tuesday night at Wayzata High School. Students put together presentations and displays to teach participants.
“Our goal is to provide food for families who don’t have food, or just to educate those who don’t know how food is produced and how it gets to their plate,” said Paige Kurtenbach, one of the students involved in the project.
Participants also got a free meal, prepared by Loaves and Fishes of rescued food, which would’ve otherwise gone to a landfill.
“So I hope it changes how people view the food on their plates, how they view the food in their pantries and how that impacts the decisions they make. Hopefully, people throw out less food,” said Kurtenbach.
