Moments not to be wasted is a completely free national educational project dedicated to primary schools to raise awareness amongst children about the importance of food. The project, designed by Whirlpool in partnership with Food Cycle, is at its second edition and it aims to teach children how to produce,  buy, preserve and consume food without wastage.

Whirlpool is strongly committed to reduce food waste through the production of innovative and efficient technologies for preservation, preparation and consuption of food.

Our free educational kit can be booked online and be used as a teaching resource and includes: a teacher’s guide, a magazine (one per pupil) and a board game.

Free workshops dedicated to the food supply chain and the waste-free approach will be also available to book throughout the year together with exclusive visits to the Whirlpool factories.

The project ends with a rewarding educational contest which gives visibility to the children’s creative work as well as involving them in a charitable action.

METHODOLOGY

Using a playful and joyful approach, the topic of “no-waste” is addressed through the different phases in which each family can give its contribution: the purchasing of food, its correct preservation and preparation.

Several multidisciplinary insights, from food chain, to food safety and hygiene and up to interculturality and solidarity, encourage children to consider nutrition not as a need to be met superficially, but as a source of life moments that count for them, for the community and for the whole planet.
