Awareness raising in schools to prevent food waste

Since it’s establishment, FoodBlessed has raising awareness on the issue of food waste in schools!

The goal of this activity is to raise awareness among school children, teachers and staff and their related families and networks on food loss and waste issues and introduce good practices conducive to food waste reduction, with an expected long-term impact.

Through these awareness sessions, FoodBlessed hopes for a deeper development of the subject and related issues such as the value of food, hunger and food security, health and nutrition, climate change and biodiversity and food losses along the food supply chain.

The sessions are expected to significantly reduce food waste in schools and households (both the plate and kitchen waste) and related negative socio economic and environmental impacts.

Special shout out to hunger heroes and #foodblessedambassador @marilynhajj @daccachejoya and @mayaterro for giving three sessions to around 200 students from International Community School (IC)!!! šŸ’ŖšŸ’ŖšŸ’ŖšŸ’ŖšŸ’ŖšŸ’ŖšŸ’Ŗ As a follow-up to our sessions, these kids will also have the chance to come Volunteer at our weekly soup kitchens!

In the end, we can not but thank our foodblessed champion at IC, Miss Cynthia for giving us the opportunity to give these awareness sessions!

Hunger Heroes Joya and Mariane were at Lycee Abdel Kader (LAK) in Beirut!
As LAK expands its Community and Service program to create more opportunities for students to learn, grow and contribute to the local community, their first annual NGO Fair provided a perfect kick-off to building relationships in the community.

Over 20 organizations set up booths as elementary and secondary students rotated around campus learning about the value of NGO programs in Lebanon and how their involvement could contribute to sustainable and meaningful change in the local community.

Flyers, business cards and volunteer forms decked FoodBlessed’s tables to tantalize students to stop by and learn how they can get involved!

FoodBlessed At New Orient Academy

March 16th, 2018 Posted by News No Comment yet

New Orient Academy school launched a campaign against Hunger among their students!
To this end, FoodBlessed ‘s Co-founder and Executive Director Hunger Hero Maya Terro was invited to give a talk about hunger, food waste, and social responsibility. She also took the opportunity to talk about what FoodBlessed does and how can highschoolers contribute to and support FoodBlessed’s cause while benefiting themselves!
Maya also highlighted the importance of realizing what poverty is rather than what it is not! To this end, “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless.The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.” (~Mother Teresa)

Special thanks to Principal Amal Yehya, Mrs. Haifa Malaeb , Ms. Nour Yehya and Mr. Shadi Khaddaj for the opportunity! Much appreciated

Want to join New Orient Academy in their fight against hunger?
