Description

WNBC-TV "discovered the New York City schools throwing out large quantities of fresh, uneaten food despite the prevalence of hunger and poverty in our city. For example, at one school we found an entire garbage bag of untouched loaves of bread. ... We also learned through our research that the U.S. Department of Agriculture encourages school districts to donate leftover food and even provided grants for such programs. However, New York City never applied for the grant."
