KESAB is partnering with OzHarvest to deliver the FEAST program to South Australian schools.

FEAST (Food Education and Sustainability Training) is OzHarvest’s curriculum-aligned education program inspiring kids to eat healthy, waste less and become change-makers in their community. Like any good FEAST, it’s designed to be fun, engaging and filled with good food!

FEAST is created from a belief that our education system has an important role to play in building resilient, confident students and encouraging creativity. The Year 5 and Year 6 education program runs for 10 weeks and teaches students about food waste, sustainability and nutrition using hands-on cooking activities in the classroom with fully equipped kitchen kits provided by OzHarvest (no kitchen required).

What is included in the FEAST program?

To run FEAST in your school we’ll provide you with all the essential ingredients to make it as easy as possible.

The FEAST curriculum package includes everything you need to teach the STEM curriculum-aligned program including:

  • Unit of work
  • 10 detailed lesson plans
  • Student worksheets for online and in-class learning
  • Optional learning experiences
  • FEAST practical guide for cooking in the classroom
  • Hot & Cold recipes tailored for the FEAST lessons and equipment

Schools will also get online access to teacher and student toolkits, OzHarvest’s video library and ongoing support from the FEAST and KESAB team. The program can be fully adapted to suit your school needs and be delivered in an online learning environment.

Before starting, teachers are encouraged to sign up to a professional learning teacher training day facilitated by KESAB or an online training module that is quick and easy to complete.

“The students loved the experience,” said Ryan, Y5 teacher ACT. “We did the lessons on Fridays and they would hound me all week about what we were cooking next.”

Good news! OzHarvest has funding available for eligible schools to sign up to FEAST at no cost. Register your school to find out more www.ozharvest.org/feast
