Nude Food Grant

Weetangera School wins Nude Food grant
Congratulation's Weetangera Primary School (ACT)!
This morning our partners from Fresh Tastes surprised the students at Weetangera Primary at a special whole school assembly.
They were very excited to learn that their Nude Food Grant for $469 had been successful and they would each be receiving a piece of fruit and have a variety of products up for grabs to celebrate their VERY FIRST Nude Food Day next week.
The school is only just starting their 'Nude Food Journey' and their Sustainability Team has been working very hard to spread the word!!
They have conducted a number of audits of the playground bins after lunch and recess and discovered an enormous amount of avoidable litter in our bins. They are doing their best encourage more environmentally considerate practices amongst students (and their families)! and believe holding a Nude food Day will go a long way in reducing the amount of rubbish that they are bringing to school in their lunch boxes.
With their entry they submitted this outstanding video which is one of the best we have received.
Congratulation's Weetangera! We hope you all enjoy your prizes and we can't wait to hear how your first Nude Food Day goes!
