Unopened milk from all 5 Kindergarten classes at Herod. I don't know exactly how many children were served this morning, but the overall number of meals served is declining. Only 14 kids in one classroom, the usual 8 in another. This is not becuase parents are choosing to opt-out, but the kids are. Perhaps the novelty and initial excitement of eating breakfast in the classroom is wearing off a bit, or maybe they really aren't hungry. Teachers, and I'm sure the parents, are telling their kids that they don't have to take the food if they aren't hungry and want to eat.
Even with fewer kids taking meals, there is still just as much waste. I count 48 milks in that photo. I wonder how much this number would change if juice were not also served with the breakfast.
