Sustainable Kitchen - Students get involved in sustainable cooking!

On September 15, Colégio Salesiano Alberto Monteiro De Carvalho in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil held the Sustainable Salê Project - an exhibition of work done by the Early Years Primary School teachers (from 1st to 5th grade).

One of the classes worked on "SUSTAINABLE KITCHEN", combining knowledge about healthy food and the reuse of almost all parts of food, such as peels and stalks. The students produced various cakes, jams and a Brazilian sweet called brigadeiro with banana peels. Brazil is one of the world's leading food producers, but it is also one of the countries with the highest rate of food waste.
