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.Learn more
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:
- Social competence
- Problem solving skills
- A sense of purpose and future
The Solution Fluency Model is used to help students gain problem-solving skills and foster a deep understanding of local community issues. It offers students the opportunity to develop a wide range of life-long learning skills including:
- Community Engagement
Meet the FEAST Family
FEAST is so important because students need to know where food comes from to value it. After completing the program, the students walked away and said, 'I can make a change!' I’d recommend FEAST to all teachers - students love it and I love it!

FEAST provides teachers with the resources to teach their student's important life skills in preparing healthy and delicious food and practical ways to fight food waste. Through real-world learning, FEAST students gain resilience, confidence, and a sense of purpose.
FEAST program Manager
The program has been a great success at our school. The kids loved the cooking and were able to engage in conversation about food waste. They were looking at ways to use up food at home without wasting it. The teachers said it was the best program the school had done to date.
Parent, Banksia Road Public School
As a teacher myself, I know teachers endeavour to empower their students to become well-informed global citizens and change makers in their communities. FEAST educates on the issues of food waste, sustainability and nutrition through curriculum-aligned, engaging resources and comprehensive professional learning opportunities. OzHarvest FEAST makes sustainability education accessible for all!
