INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGE: Start Lent with a clean slate. Use all foods that are on the edge of spoiling in meals this week, and clean out any foods that have already spoiled.
GROUP CHALLENGE: If you receive food from your school, parish, or organization, do you know where your food waste goes? Ask someone from food services what happens to food scraps from food preparation and where leftovers go.
