THE SCOTTISH WASTE EDUCATION SUPPORT PROGRAMME’S
‘FINISH YOUR FOOD’
One Day Training Course
Reducing Food Waste in Schools and Communities
***HURRY! SPECIAL OFFER***
One third of food is wasted when it could be reduced, reused and recycled. This fabulous food waste training course will equip you with the skills, knowledge and information needed to engage schools and communities in reducing food waste.
You will observe the highly engaging ‘Finish Your Food with Mr Silly Sausage’ project in action and learn about the techniques employed to tackle wastage. The ‘Finish Your Food’ project is an excellent way to support Eco Schools initiatives and reduce food waste in school. Learn how pupils become active citizens as they raise awareness at home with the ‘Plate Pledge’ family challenge and the whole community is effectively engaged in food waste reduction.
The Scottish Waste Education Support Programme (SWESP) run by Changeworks has been delivering high quality waste education training courses to the majority of Scotland’s local authorities and community organisations for the last 5 years. You too could benefit from our unique approach to waste education through a range of activities, techniques and top tips based on tried and tested waste education from experienced waste educators.
