Commission for Environmental Cooperation: Food Matters Action Kit and Activity Guide

The Food Matters Action Kit contains over 70 activities to engage youth in preventing food waste. Activities can be done individually or in a series, in any order that suits learning themes for your class or organization.

There are two sets of activities: for kids (ages 5-13) and youth (ages 14-25) organized together by theme. Many activities are relevant for either age group, so feel free to explore them all!

If you are a community organizer, an educator, or a professional working with children and youth on raising awareness about food loss and waste, here are some resources to support you with your outreach efforts.

Help us promote the Food Matters Action Kit by sharing our one page flyer. It’s easy, all you have to do is download and print. We also have a Power Point presentation for you to use should you have the opportunity to present the Food Matters Action Kit within your community.
