DALLAS (September 27, 2012)—The Dallas School Board will consider Thursday whether to allow three elementary schools to join a Texas A&M AgriLife Research Plate Waste Collection Study in which researchers would collect, weigh and photograph food left on school lunch trays at the schools.
The $200,000 study would be funded by the nonprofit potato industry Alliance for Potato Research and Education.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture had considered requiring limiting starchy vegetables such as potatoes in national school meal programs.
Congress, however, blocked the requirement.
