When food and organic waste ends up in landfills, it produces more methane which causes negative impacts to our health and environment. We need to improve our global situation – we came up with the idea of “composting”. Teaching the younger generations about the importance of composting and reusing food organic products will allow them to sustain their community. Educating individuals on the proper avenue towards food reutilization may reduce waste and will decrease the amount of demand for new food within the community.
We will be working with local elementary school teachers of Woburn Jr. Public School and St. Thomas More Catholic school to raise awareness about food insecurity and teach children about the importance of reducing food waste, community sustenance and cultivating community. Students, parents and community members will receive educational brochures which contain a guide of how to compost properly.
