Fukuoka City Aims for Zero Food Waste in School Lunches

Fukuoka City has launched an initiative to achieve zero food waste from school lunches as part of its efforts to create an eco-friendly society. Six elementary schools are piloting this program, which includes composting food waste. On June 6, fourth graders at Teriha Elementary School mixed carrot peels from lunch preparation with rice husks in a compost bag. This composting process is expected to produce fertilizer in about a month, which will be used in the school’s flowerbeds. Students will also discuss and implement ways to reduce food waste.
