Wayzata Students Rescue Food, Prepare Meal
Students obtained food from restaurants and businesses that otherwise might have been thrown out. They used it to serve a full meal to the community on Monday night.
Students participating in the Compass program organized the event. The program allows students to receive both high school and college credit.
“We’re also trying to promote a lot about food insecurity and food waste in our community,” explained Maddie Kerber, a senior at Wayzata High. “So we have a meal that’s being prepared right now from fully rescued sources. So food that restaurants would take, we get to have it.”
This was the second time that Compass held the Rescued Food Dinner.
