FEAST is a Year 5 and 6 food waste education program from OzHarvest. The program runs for 7-10 weeks and is a STEM project-based learning program focusing on food and fibre and the cross-curriculum priority of Sustainability. The teacher-led program can be adapted and changed to suit your school’s needs. Like any good FEAST, it’s designed to be fun, engaging and filled with good food!
FEAST can be easily implemented in any classroom. Our curriculum package uses the latest teaching and learning approaches and includes everything you need to teach the STEM curriculum-aligned food waste education program. FEAST gets kids immersed in hands-on cooking activities in the classroom with our fully equipped kitchen kits (no kitchen required). To implement FEAST with ease we provide online and face-to-face teacher training. Learn more about FEAST.

Half of all food wasted comes from the home. So, we can all be part of the solution, starting TODAY! (see evidence)
