We celebrated Food Day by learning and investigating food waste. We conducted a small research in our homes to see whether we dispose a lot of food in the garbage. The results were rather hopeful. Although we discard some food we don’t do it all the time and in large quantities. We presented our research to the whole school and our parents. We created posters to encourage our fellow students not to waste food. We invited a well known Cypriot chef to suggest us ways to storage food and also reuse leftovers so nothing is wasted in our kitchens. We also helped him cook delicious foods with food that was going to be discarded. We invited our parents and grandmothers to the speech.
