How FEAST Works

FEAST runs for 7-10 weeks and is a STEM project-based learning program focusing on food and sustainability. The teacher-led program can be adapted and changed to suit your school’s needs.

To run the program, teachers are encouraged to sign up to teacher training day or an online training module that is quick and easy to complete.

Schools also get access to online learning resources including 10 detailed lesson plans, student worksheets, videos, recipes books, the FEAST practical cooking guide and ongoing support from the FEAST team.

FEAST can be easily implemented in any classroom with our fully equipped kitchen kits (no kitchen required).

Thanks to support from corporate and philanthropic organisations, financial support is available to help eligible schools undertake the program.

Why Teach FEAST

FEAST is created from a belief that our education system has an important role to play in building resilient, confident students and encouraging creativity. It helps to enhance:

FEAST in High Schools

We’re so excited to bring FEAST to high schools in 2023! We identified an opportunity in the Australian Curriculum to bring together sustainability, food waste and nutrition education, creating a curriculum-aligned program called FEAST (Food Education & Sustainability Training). After a successful national-roll out in primary schools, a new and exciting program has been developed for year 7 & 8 high school students.
