Launch of Home Economics Resource on Food Waste

08 Nov - 09 Nov

ATHE Conference, Athlone

The upcoming Association of Teachers of Home Economics Annual Conference in Athlone will see the launch of the Home Economics Teacher Resource Pack on Food Waste.

As part of an LAPN collaboration with Galway City Council, Galway County Council, Roscommon County Council, Mayo County Council, VOICE Ireland and the Home Economics Department, St Angela’s College, Sligo, we have produced a Food Waste Resource Pack for Home Economics Teachers which supports the new Junior Cycle.

The resource pack contains an introduction for teachers, posters and handouts with attractive images, activity pages on planning & shopping, food storage, cooking & preserving, and a conclusion to the lesson.

Thank you to all of the teachers who have participated in the pilot. Your feedback has contributed to the final resource, ensuring that it is of a high standard and relevant to classroom settings.

Here is the resource pack.
