Focusing on key messages, the project teaches children:
Recycling and the 3 R’s; how to recycle or upcycle everyday materials on.
Plastic Pollution; understanding the consequences of plastic pollution for people and the planet.
Food Waste; How to reduce food waste and teaching how to cook using food that would otherwise would have gone to waste.
Sustainability; Understand the local/global impact of our meat overconsumption & livestock rearing as well as looking at alternative diets.
Vicki Williams, Founder of BreadnButter explains “it is the perfect project offering families who would usually turn to alternative means, the chance to learn new skills. It’s about giving back to the community as well as delivering for the future.”
BreadnButter have partnered up with The Felix Project, who provide salvaged food for all the classes.
Pupils from St John and St James Primary, Houndsfield Primary, Brettenham Primary, Hazelwood Primary and Meridian Angel Primary will put their skills to the test as they engage with the local community through activities such as true/false statements, what you can and cannot recycle, bug tasting as well as reviewing food donated by The Felix Project and providing free samples!
