Today you can now listen to Episode #4, the final episode in a series about the food waste ecosystem in NSW and Newcastle where along with my Feedback Organic co-conspirator Christina Robberds, I’m joined by Athea Lesay and Eve Britten-Frazier, students at the University of Newcastle who we mentored in 2022 to deliver an innovative food waste avoidance program for young people aged 18-34.
We chat with Athea and Eve about their experience as Pitch Propagate mentoring program recipients, their key learnings and what the future holds for them as the next generation of food waste avoidance champions.
Specifically, we cover:
- What motivated them to apply for a Pitch Propagate mentorship with Feedback Organic
- The program they delivered
- What worked well with the program. What didn’t work so well
- The biggest barriers for young people in reducing food waste
- The most important lesson they’ve learnt through the mentorship program
- We also ask them a series of fun questions like ‘What’s your favourite food waste nifty trick’?
You can listen to the podcast via Spotify and subscribe today to be notified of future episodes.
Feedback Organic’s Feedback Loop podcast channel is a space to explore how we’re growing food’s future together. We chat with changemakers about the value of circular food systems and converting local food waste into urban farm produce, the importance of connecting with the community and the gift of food.
