Abstract:A "sharing table” is a system in which uneaten unopened packaged foods or beverages, or unpeeled fruits, may be placed by students that do not want them, for consumption by other children. Providing nutrition for the students at your facility is the primary mission of your food service program, so sharing tables are a great way to fulfill that mission while also diverting food from the landfill. These systems are allowed the Illinois Food Service Sanitation Code (77 Ill. Adm. Code 750) under certain conditions.
