Program Updates

Chelan Middle/High School: Chelan MS/HS: After our post implementation audit, we estimated a 50-60% reduction in waste thanks to a school-wide recycling/composting program. This includes a 75% increase in recycling/composting of appropriate items. Dozens of hungry families every week are also benefiting from the food share box, where students drop off unwanted whole food items. We now hope to decrease the number of days of trash pick-up and save $$$! 95% of our our middle school and 20% of the high school has been directly involved in the project implementation. - Jan 27, 2015

Seattle Country Day School: We were just awarded level 1 status! - Jan 23, 2015
