What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Fuel for School aims to educate the next generation on food waste to combat the current environmental impacts of food over production. By diverting surplus food from landfill into Primary schools and offering education around this we can not only highlight the volume and senselessness of food waste to children, we can also allow families on low income access to surplus food on a PAYF basis. By concentrating on the environmental impacts of food waste some of the social issues of food poverty can be dealt with without highlighting or stigmatising those that need it. Inclusive environments can be created allowing everyone to feel equal and are empowered to make a change against food waste. Fuel for School will provide a range of surplus food to schools that can be made into nutritious meals. the food delivery will also support the education pack that will develop children's skills and knowledge around food, environment, cooking, nutrition, recycling and growing.
Steps to get it done:
the educational pack provides a range of activities suitable for years 3,4,5 and 6. Each has been carefully designed to foster inclusion, and facilitate differentiation, and all activities support and enhance the delivery of the National Curriculum whilst empowering the next generation to make a real difference as part of TRJFP campaign against food waste. The links to the National Curriculum are identified within each individual activity set out in our educational pack. In addition to support national curriculum learning it also supports a lot of social development in children. Food is the one thing that everyone has as a common ground so it helps to break down a lot of barriers, children are able to help out with checking in the food deliveries, running market stalls, researching new foods, cooking and developing meals and much more. our current partnered schools have reported improved to engagement with others and development confidence and emotional resilience in pupils.
