Edible Education

Engaging food and sustainability education through creativity and participation.

It is the Edible Education mission to:

  • inspire waste reduction by promoting an understanding of the food system and helping participants identify the vast array of natural resources we are wasting every time we put food in the bin
  • build an appreciation of the true value of food believing this to be a  pathway to greater interest in the environment, sustainability and a desire to make choices which are healthy for the planet as well as themselves
  • motivate active citizenship among young people through the development of skills and self confidence

Our vision of success… To create a new norm in which people instinctively avoid food waste and act in the interests of the global community and the environment, understanding the true value of food. Through enjoyment and engagement, young people will regard a sustainable food system as a necessity and care about the interrelated, wider social and environmental issues the world is facing. Young people will:

  • seek to make sustainable lifestyle choices which have positive implications for the environment and global community
  • be inspired to lead environmental and social change, particularly to discourage pre-consumer food waste in a variety of ways
