School provides students with takeout meals

Every day, school cafeterias have leftover food that isn't sold and usually ends up going to waste.

But one school district in Elkhart, Indiana, is doing something good with the leftovers. Instead of throwing out the excess food, they're packing it up into takeout meals and giving them to students to take home for the weekend.

Many students in the district depend on the school meals during the week but have little or nothing to eat on the weekend when there is no school.

When school administrators noticed how much food was going in the trash, they came up with a terrific alternative.
