Students at Wyong’s HopeTown School have participated in the FEAST program.
Standing for Food Education And Sustainability Training, the program is provided by Oz Harvest, one of Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, and is a curriculum aligned education program designed to empower students to eat healthier, waste less and become changemakers in their local community.
All Primary students at HopeTown took part in FEAST throughout Term 2, with students immersed in hands-on cooking activities that focused on teaching them how to create healthy meals, follow recipes and be more mindful about food waste.
To support the program’s implementation, Oz Harvest also provided cooking equipment to the school, including electric frying pans for each student, as well as online learning resources, student worksheets, videos and recipes.
HopeTown Principal, Kirsty Reynolds, said the program has been a hit with students and a welcome addition to their learning over the past few months.
“The students have had so much fun cooking delicious meals, trying new foods and learning about everything food,” she said.
