hEMSWORTH Arts and Community College pupils took part in a new eduction programme aimed at tackling food and recycling waste.
Wakefield Council launched the Love Food Hate Waste project to give tips, and ideas on how to keep food fresher for longer, reduce waste and save money.
The pupils learnt about how much food waste gets produced, investigated what types of food people throw away and how food waste can be avoided.
Coun Maureen Cummings, Wakefield Council’s cabinet member for environment and community, who attended one of the classes at HACC, said: “We are working hard to tackle the issue of food waste by educating not only children but also the local community.
“The children really engage with the team and the programme is a great way for the messages on food waste to feed back to the parents.”
