Food sustainability and climate change are whole world issues, but you can make a difference in your school or tuckshop as well.

What can you do?

Check out the links on the left of this page to find out what your school community can do to reduce its carbon footprint related to food. 

Be sure to read the case studies of Queensland Schools that have begun to make a difference in this area.  Your school community might even like to take out our four week Eco-friendly Food Challenge!

Is your school already doing something great for the environment?

Email us to share your story about the what eco friendly changes your school has already made.

The resources on this website have been developed by qualified nutritionists in a partnership between Queensland Health, Queensland University of Technology and the Queensland Association of School Tuckshops so you can be confident that our recommendations seek to provide sound advice on choosing both healthy and environmentally friendly food choices.
