We are thrilled to announce that Siena College has been selected as the pilot secondary school for the Oz Harvest FEAST program. Founded by Ronni Kahn AO in 2004 after noticing the huge volume of food going to waste, OzHarvest has quickly grown to become Australia’s leading food rescue organisation.
FEAST is a curriculum aligned education program, inspiring young people to eat healthy food, waste less and be change-makers in their local communities. The STEM project-based learning program will inform our Year 7 students about food waste, sustainability and nutrition using hands-on cooking and inquiry based learning.
Head of Justice Education, Bronwyn Ilott says, "This is a wonderful opportunity for Siena to educate our students about food waste as a global environmental and social justice issue. Importantly, in collaboration with OzHarvest, we will be empowering students to take action within their own homes to consider their household food choices with health, the environment and food waste in mind. This innovative program will run in the final week of Year 7, commencing 25 November. Parents of Year 7 students can expect to enjoy seasonal recipes prepared for them by their daughters over the summer!"
