Food Matters Action Kit Seeks Pilot Testers


Food Matters Action Kit Seeks Pilot Testers

I wanted to let you know of an opportunity to pilot activities in the forthcoming Food Matters Action Kit, an exciting new resource designed to help youth (ages 5-23) take action on reducing food waste.

We're inviting interested organizations, schools, youth groups, clubs, or classes to participate in our pilot phase. By participating in this phase, your group will have the opportunity to test out the Food Matters Action Kit by completing one or more food waste reduction activities or lesson plans between January and March 2019. We are asking pilot participants to test out whatever part of the toolkit works for them, and then to upload photos and descriptions of their actions on our website. Participating organizations or groups will be featured on our website when we launch the Action Kit in March 2019, with an opportunity to be highlighted as part of our launch promotions. 

If you're interested in learning about how to fight food waste and/or looking for activities and lesson plans on that subject, please consider participating in our pilot phase! For more info, please contact the U.S. Team Lead:

The Food Matters Action Kit was commissioned by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, a joint project of the governments of Canada, Mexico and the United States as part of their North American Initiative on Food Waste Reduction and Recovery. It was developed by the Food Systems Lab in collaboration with an advisory committee of youth organizations from across the three countries.
