Greenwich school partners with Food Rescue US to donate unused food in Stamford
The Eagle Hill School in Greenwich announced it will partner with Food Rescue US to donate unused food from its lunches to families in need in Stamford.
The school has already been donating food to the New Covenant Center in Stamford, which provides meals to thousands of families through its soup kitchen and food pantry.
Assistant headmaster Tom Cone says the school recognized early last year that it was wasting a lot of food.
He says the school has a tradition of community service and decided to donate the unused food instead of letting it go to waste.
The school held an assembly today to announce the new partnership.
Food Rescue volunteers will deliver leftover lunches to several agencies across the greater Stamford area, which will then distribute the food to families in need.
