When students at CE choose not to eat an item from their lunch, that food does not go to waste. If the food is unopened, students can put unwanted items in a special bin near the trash cans to be saved. It is then donated to the Hamilton County Food Rescue Program who collects at the school every other week. Cafeteria Manager LeAnn Schelling keeps everything refrigerated until it gets picked up, disposing of items that go past their freshness date.
