USDA Leftover Prints

I am a child care provider and participate in the USDA food program. This means I feed the children I care for according to the rules of the USDA and they pay for part of the meals. The product of black and white rules in this case is enormous amounts of food waste. I have started turning the leftovers into paint/ink and using it to create color-field screen prints. The prints pictured below are my first attempt at this process.

This process is inspired by the work of another artist-mother but I cannot think of who it is at the moment. It is on my to-do list.
