The education sector alone produces 13% of all non-domestic food waste in England, throwing out some 123,000 tonnes a year, the bulk of that going straight to landfill. Reducing waste is not only good for the environment but it also saves money and retain nutritional benefit in children rather then in bins.
The Food Waste Ninjas Project is a multi-week educational program designed to achieve the following goals:
• Discover why food gets wasted.
• Motivate students to reduce food waste during regular snack and lunch times.
• Educate students to the benefits of food waste reduction, insight into food production, nutrition and waste management systems.
• Provide a toolkit to help those responsible for implementing initiatives to reduce food waste in schools
