Beyond the Sea
You may be curious as to what is the And Beyond to Free Our Seas? Our mission is to engage our community and youth in raising awareness of how our individual choices affect the greater good. An area which has a huge impact on our environment and community is food recovery. From production to purchase, over 40% of all food produced is wasted. It costs us both money and lost resources: water, energy, pesticides, fertilizers and wildlife habitat. Like other well intended consumers, I buy food each week that I end up throwing away. Additionally, schools across the nation throw away over one billion unopened and unpeeled food items each year.
Free Our Seas works closely with our youth and schools. So, a natural extension is to support the school food recovery movement expand throughout the state. For more information on starting a School Food Recovery Program at your school click the button below.
