For Teachers

Farm To Fork & Sustainability

We use food as an entry point to make it easy to educate about sustainability. Empower students to be informed decision-makers, equipped to solve meaningful challenges in their communities and beyond. Help students understand how our food choices impact the natural environment. Let’s not just teach children about the world, but how they can change it.

Hands-on Learning

What Our Teachers Are Saying

I enjoy working with Munchkins immensely. They are creative, reliable, very organised and always supportive. We’ve also had great feedback from the parent and teacher community building workshops, as well as from seminars around cooking, growing food and family feeding. We look forward to more collaborative projects with Munchkins!

Ms Yau, Principal of Fairchild Kindergarten

The Food Unit went really well and it was very helpful to have a supply of resources and support from Munchkins. Melissa was there to support us every step of the way and had a wealth of knowledge to share with us and arranged for ‘experts’ to come and speak with the children. The students were so excited to meet a real life farmer! They loved seeing his farm, how he manages his tasks and having a chance to touch the caterpillars. We also really enjoyed seeing behind the scenes of the food charity as we usually see a “face” of a charity without always understanding how it actually works. We’re looking forward to getting the school garden going next, with the helpful support and training from Munchkins.

—Ms Williams, Yew Chung International School HK

With Munchkins help we have a really strong team to establish a Kids Kitchen programme that integrates into our curriculum across all grades. The project is proving to be really engaging and empowering for the teachers who are feeling more confident and skilled to introduce more food related activities in the classroom.

—Ms. Robinson, HKIS

Thanks to Munchkins we have a clearly defined Green Council teacher/student team to support the Sustainable Development Goals. The children already made some great discoveries – gathering strong data to understand how we can effectively manage our food waste at school. We’re presenting our findings to the leadership team next to get support on the targets set by the children and the action they think we should take. The activity had been really empowering for them and given us hard evidence to make positive changes at school.

Ms. Horton, Yew Chung International School HK

Munchkins brought shape and structure to our Sustainability Unit within a matter of weeks. The ideas, and interactive learning activities have made home learning a lot easier and productive. We’re looking forward to introducing external experts to the class next. This will really get the kids’ creativity going as they think about how we can make our school and homes more sustainable.

—Mr. Jack, Head of Year at Yew Chung International School HK

The students really enjoyed the food waste activities and testing out their problem solving skills by investigating how we managed our waste at school. Munchkins introduced some great National Geographic resources for the class which helped the kids reflect on our food waste in HK. The kids continued to explore food waste following the sessions – creating a “recycling plant” in the classroom and planting seeds from thrown away veggies.

—Ms. Tang, Fairchild Kindergarten
