Welcome to the schools section of Feeding 5,000. We have developed a food waste challenge pack for schools that will help students learn about all the ways they can reduce food waste.

This challenge takes two weeks and all students need to do is bring in their usual lunch. Teachers need two containers and a weighing scales. That’s it! It’s really simple and a great way for a green school to teach students about the environment and ways they can make a difference.

We’re also looking for students to write a blog about the food his or her family made and wasted during the project.

The best blogs will feature on our website,

If you are a teacher, student or parent, and would like to get involved just click here for our information pack.
