Food for thought… everyone stand up ! You’re at school – your packed lunch has been made, sit down if you ever throw some away… …then at home, dinner is served. Sit down if you don’t eat all of your dinner because there is too much… …at dinner, lots of food has been made (maybe a big lasagne), stay standing up if leftovers get kept, frozen or eaten next day…
…still standing? Yes – you are a food waste warrior! No – lets think of a solution…
