Play In A Day

Around a third of all the food we buy ends up being thrown away and most of this could have been eaten. It's not just peelings, cores and bones and it's not just an issue of good food going to waste or that this costs us as consumers a significant amount of money, but that there are serious environmental implications. 90% of us just don't realise how much good food we throw out. In the UK we throw away 6.7 million tonnes of food each year. That's 1 tonne for every 9 people!

A Play in a Day for up to 30 KS2 or KS3 pupils.

This Play in a Day looks at the added implications of food waste and how we can address this major issue. Love Food Hate Waste also covers topics such as landfill and carbon footprints left due to food transportation.

Working together as actors to create a fun, action-packed short performance, informing as much as it entertains, students will explore a wide range of topical issues.

Key themes:

-         the value of teamwork

-         self-expression

-         public speaking

-         confidence building

-         increased subject knowledge and awareness of key issues.

Love Food, Hate Waste is a popular choice for School's Environmental or Global Awareness focus weeks.
