SHARING TABLES -  is  an effort to reduce the amount of wasted food and encourage the consumption of food served at schools. Children can place unconsumed food and beverage items they choose not to eat or drink on the table. This provides other children the opportunity to take additional helpings of food or beverages at no extra cost. Use these guidelines to help your school start a sharing table program. The Vermont Department of Health can help you plan your program.  Read more about SharingTables_FactSheet_final
