The Lake Washington School District Food Service Sustainability Roadmap (FSSR) is a district-wide, coordinated, systematic approach to reducing food waste, decreasing organic materials (food waste) from going to landfill. The FSSR is meant to help improve food sustainability efforts at every level of the school district.

5 Goals of FSSR

  1. District coordination of food sustainability efforts
  2. Standardization of food sustainability protocols
  3. Reduction of food waste
  4. Reduce single-use items
  5. Educate, train, monitor, and maintain
