Avila Students Showcase Sustainable Food

A group of Year 12 students have found a fantastic way to promote food sustainability. An entire recipe book has been launched by these students, from Avila College Mount Waverley, in Victoria.

The students investigated the issue of food wastage in the home and  discussed how many left overs can be re-imagined into new dishes. They collected family recipes and published the book, titled “Taste It Don’t Waste It”.

Every recipe in the book showcases a delicious way to minimise food wastage. “The recipes were compiled into a book which they designed and printed” said Kim Edwards from Avila College. “The book is available as a digital e-book and printed copies were also presented to staff and families.”
