Year 5 Oz Harvest

Friday, October 28, 2022

As part of the Grade 5 Inquiry and Literacy Units – we have been participating in Oz Harvest’s “FEAST” school program. This program aims to teach students all about food waste and sustainability. It is a program designed to inspire kids to eat healthier, waste less and be change-makers in their local community.

“Did you know that there is enough food waste produced to feed everyone worldwide? Crazy isn’t it!
In the world, people waste so much food that if food waste was a country, it would be the third biggest emitter of greenhouse gases after USA and China. If humans eliminated food waste, 4.4 million tonnes of CO2 would be saved per year. 1 in 9 people don’t have food to eat! That’s 793 million people who are undernourished! If 1/4 of the world’s food waste was reduced, everyone in the world would have food to eat.”
