There are many reasons why food is wasted in school – from too much food being prepared and not served, to food being thrown away uneaten because of portion sizes, taste, lack of time, poor dining experience or a combination of all these factors. Food waste can also happen throughout the school day, at breakfast clubs, snack/break time and during lessons, e.g. food preparation and cooking.
An effective way to reduce waste at school is to have a whole school approach. Join Jason as he outlines the whole school approach to tackling food waste at Washingborough Academy. Hear about actions that you can take, and tips you can use, whatever your school setting.
