Project Lunchbox - Camden Council

posted Mar 16, 2014, 4:55 PM by Sean Donovan   [ updated Mar 16, 2014, 4:58 PM ]

Camden Council’s Project Lunchbox aims to raise awareness of the impact of food waste and encourage the local community to reduce how much 'good' food we waste.

Project Lunchbox uses a three-pronged approach to address food waste by facilitating:

·         ‘Blog Bites ’Blogging Workshop and Competition (Closes Friday 4 April 2014)

·         Children’s Book Writing Competition (Closes Monday 7 April 2014)

·         Trivia ‘Bites’ Night on Friday 11 April 2014

Visit for further details about the competitions and trivia night.

Project Lunchbox is funded through the NSW Environment Protection Authority’s (EPA) Love Food Hate Waste<> (LFHW) Program.

Whilst the Blogging Competition and Workshops specifically related to young people, the Children’s Book Writing Competition (below) may also appeal to some younger people (and there are age categories that apply).

The competition includes three age categories*:
·      Open – 18 years and over
·      Young People – 11–18 years
·      Children – 5–11 years
* based on your age at 1 March 2014

The Trivia Night is open to the broader community but may be of interest to young people as well.

For further information or to get involved in this new initiative, please contact Denise Franovich, Acting Team Leader – Sustainability at Camden Council on 4645 5007 or<>
