The project

Moments not to be wasted is an educational project about sustainable food consumption promoted by Whirlpool Corporation, a company which is strongly committed to reducing food waste through the production of innovative and efficient technologies for food preservation, preparation and consumption.

The aim of the project is to launch a wide-ranging awareness campaign, sharing the value of food with teachers, children and families, fighting against waste and its importance for people, communities and the planet.

The didactic path has the kitchen at its centre, a place where even kids can have the opportunity to experience food as protagonists.

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’s moments that count, as something important for them, for the community and for the whole planet.

 

 

The project ends with a rewarding educational competition  which gives visibility to children’s creative work and involves them in a charitable action.
