Good food habits start young, so we’re working with 24 primary schools across all nine of our partner boroughs to get Key Stage 2 pupils engaged and passionate about food waste and the planet. We’ll be teaching them a few things about healthy eating, wasting less food and recycling.
We’re running 6 sessions in each school, including a whole school campaign, where young people are taking an active role in tackling food waste and encouraging healthy eating. They are designing campaigns to suit their school context and are spreading the message to the whole school community including parents, teachers, and fellow pupils. Campaigns so far have included creating healthy smoothies from leftover fruit, giving out food waste caddies to parents at the school gates, creating a ‘love your leftovers’ recipe book and many more to come. If your school is interested in taking part, you can contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are always looking to grow our schools programme, to reach more schools and deliver even more in the schools we’re reaching – can you help with cooking ingredients or chefs for interactive sessions? If you’re interested in sponsoring the schools sessions, do get in touch with email@example.com to find out more.
