Food waste is a global issue, compromising both human health and environmental sustainability. Schools alone contribute substantial amounts of avoidable food waste to this problem. For instance, the schools across one state in Australia reported that each year their students discarded 2 to 3 million items of uneaten food.
To address this problem, the complex network of relationships and interactions that contribute to the problem need to be understood, and these relationships involve individuals, households, schools, and society. The aim of this work was to apply behavioural science tools and principles to help reduce food waste in schools.
