DID YOU KNOW? What happens with all of the left over food at our schools?

MCCSC Participates in Meal Sharing Programs


Currently, MCCSC participates in meal share programs with Hoosier Hills Food Bank, Community Kitchen, and Wheeler Mission - Bloomington. Usable leftovers that we can't use are provided to these community organizations:

Hoosier Hills provides containers and picks up regularly from our schools. We have participated in the Hoosier Hills Meal Share Program since 2010.

Leftovers that don't freeze well but can reheat for use within one day are taken to Community Kitchen and Wheeler Mission by Food Service Staff.

Milk is picked up by Prairie Farms and redistributed to meal share with programs or farmers (if outdated). This happens on the last day prior to our breaks (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break and Summer). Our account is credited for all milk they take back.

Identified students in our elementary schools and at Tri-North Middle School, receive food for the weekend through the Community Kitchen Backpack Buddies Program.
