Food waste is one of the biggest environmental issues facing our planet today. The average Australian throws out 178kg of UNEATEN food per year!! This equates to 4 million tonnes of uneaten food thrown out in Australia every year. Most of this food ends up in our land-fills and release methane which is a very potent greenhouse gas.

Apart from being a huge environmental issue, we waste a massive amount of money, nearly 8 billion dollars was wasted on this uneaten food!!

Who would think that a little thing like a half eaten apple, or a cheese and Vegemite sandwich left in your school bag could be part of such a worldwide epidemic?!

CERES Education is tackling this huge issue head on with our exciting FOOD WASTE activity!!
