NUDE FOOD CHALLENGE – Case Study

Nude food is food that has no wrappers.  At our school we have set up a challenge for each year level where each class in that year level gets points for bringing to school a nude snack or nude lunch or bonus points for having a fully nude food lunchbox.

 

We did a rubbish audit at our school and found that a lot of the rubbish in our yard and our bins were from the wrappers being brought to the school from home in lunchboxes.  We decided that we needed to do something to make the students and teachers reduce the amount of waste in our school.

 

We already had a nude food day once a week, on a Monday, but we learnt that it was not reducing the waste enough, so we have taken it one step further and made the nude food challenge that rewards students and classes to do their best to look after the environment and to reduce waste in our school. 

 

So far the students are really enjoying it, are reducing waste and love working together as a team to be crowned the nude food class of the week in their year level.  It is has been a really successful program in our school.
