This Sydney School's Program Is Helping To Combat Food Waste

Food scrap friday
Since 2016, Lachlan Jobbins and Georgina Eldershaw together with a tribe of devoted volunteers have been collecting food scraps from the Camdenville Primary School community.
The weekly arrangement sees an average of 4.8kg of scraps collected from each family which is then composted in one of the community chickens or one of their many compost bins. 
The team were just featured on Gardening Australia, watch the clip here.
Families collect everything from vegetable scraps, to old bread and tea bags. 
To date, the team have collected over 10,300kg of scraps with the weekly addition of around 50kg of coffee grounds from one of the local cafes and are on track to hit 11-tonnes of waste in the next couple of months.
