*The chicken-food scrap signage applies to those schools that have their food scraps disposed of via a facility where chickens are part of the process of converting food waste into compost (and the eggs the chickens produce). These schools include: Bradford ES, Hardwick ES, Hazen Union, Oxbow HS, River Bend CTC, and Walden School. Contact John Jose (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request copies of signage. Classroom and/or cafeteria visits can be provided to support incorporation of the signage into school food scrap disposal systems.
