Food is wasted and lost every day, around the world, but do we understand the impact of that on food security, the economy, and the environment?

Follow the Food – Exploring Food Loss and Food Waste is a hands-on, inquiry-based resource to help students gain a better appreciation as to the value of food, the resources that go into making it, how the agriculture and food industry in Manitoba reduces food loss and waste and the role schools and students can play in reducing food waste.
