Inculcating Food Waste Awareness in the Young

Clean Plate at School

Clean Plate at School

Old habits die hard.

That is why Food from the Heart’s first year of Clean Plate Campaign was held in Primary Schools, to start inculcating mindfulness of food waste in students from young. The Campaign now reaches out to children as young as 4 years old by partnering PCF Sparkletots, as well as student groups up to tertiary level.

The Campaign also extends to the public. See how individuals can help raise funds by reducing food waste.

Food Waste Education in Schools

Why is food precious?

What is food waste landscape like in Singapore? What do we achieve by being mindful about food waste?

Most of us know that wasting food is bad, but for some, the link between the food we order today and its impact on the environment is unclear.

The key to successfully instilling mindful food consumption habits begins with giving a good ‘why’, and by providing facts and context, the Clean Plate Campaign strives to help students better understand the reason behind our campaign. This is done through talks, videos and other classroom materials.

Clean Plate Campaign in Action!

To reinforce the message of mindful eating and avoiding food waste, the Clean Plate Campaign challenges students to finish their food.

In preschools and primary schools, students are encouraged to show Clean Plate ambassadors that they have finished their food. In higher institutions, students pledge to finish their food.

Each count goes towards helping Food from the Heart raise funds to feed the needy.
