Schools urged to take part in The Big Lunch

Have your say

Local primary and nursery schools are invited to take part in The Big Lunch ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ competition where three lucky schools across Northern Ireland will be selected to win a £200 cash prize to support sustainable living in their school community!

The competition is being delivered by The Big Lunch in partnership with the national food waste campaign ‘Love Food Hate Waste’.

To take part, schools must host a Big Lunch, which demonstrates how they have encouraged visitors, staff and pupils to think about their food waste as part of the event.

Pupils or their teachers should simply compose a description (in less that 500 words) of their Big Lunch, after it has taken place, including three images and explain how they love food and hate waste.

Completed entries should be sent to on, or before 5pm on June 27.

The Competition will also count towards the Eco-Schools programme, as part of their waste topic.

Get started by visiting to request a free pack or call 0845 850 8181 to speak to one of the team.
