Young Eco Team Raises Donation for 'Feed It Forward' While Reducing Food Waste

Tags: Feed it forward, reduce food waste, eco team

 

Our kids are setting the example for the future and it is time for adults to start paying attention and following suit. The Eco Team at Blantyre Public School took the remarkable initiative to do something we should all be more conscious about. Every Canadian, on average, tosses away 170kg of food every year. In an effort to reduce these numbers, the inspiring Eco Team used unused foods from their lunch room to make a 'Super Apple Sauce Bread'. They then sold some of their recycled creation to various staff members throughout the school, raising $10 which they proceeded to donate to 'Feed It Forward'.
