[ARCHIVED] OCRA Food Scrap Pickup Expands Free Service
OCRA Food Scrap Pickup Expands Free Service
The food scrap recycling initiative designed and run by OCRA (Original Civic Research and Action) Mamaroneck High School seniors Arielle Herz and Cameron Lee, expanded its free pickup service this fall within the Village of Larchmont. Their next expansion will take place in February 2022. If people are interested in participating in the OCRA Food Scrap Pickup service as the program expands in the Village of Larchmont, they can sign up by e-mailing Arielle and Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org
OCRA juniors, Svea-Liv Sheehan, Oliver Johnson, and Juliette Remy, who initially looked to capture unused food from the school's brown bag lunch service, are now collecting data to better understand the amount and types of food that goes unused at Mamaroneck High School during lunch that could be captured and transported to food insecure individuals and families.
