In this webinar, we will learn about how conducting student food waste audits connects students to real-world problem solving through project-based learning in their school cafeteria and formal classroom learning. Presenters will walk webinar participants through the World Wildlife Fund’s Food Waste Warrior Toolkit, Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future’s FoodSpan curriculum, Farm to School initiatives, and Green Schools Alliance incentives.
