“I would ABSOLUTELY recommend the FoodCycler for other classrooms and other schools. It’s perfect for my classroom and my kids!” -Adrianne B.

 
Students were encouraged to deposit their lunchtime leftovers and scraps into the FoodCycler. Once the bucket was full, they would run a cycle throughout the day, often reaching the end of the cycle by the end of the school day.
 
With their newly recycled food scraps in hand, the class incorporated the nutrient-rich by-product directly into the greenhouse soil, assisting the growth of the plants and adding a fresh understanding of biological processes to the students’ life skill learning.
 
Class teacher, Adrianne realized instantly just how well the FoodCycler fit into her classroom.
 

“Many kids are visual learners. It’s gratifying for them to see the whole process, going from eating the food, to turning it into fertilizer, and then putting it back into the earth - all in a few hours.”

 
Adrianne used the FoodCycler in many STEM-oriented projects and life skills development:
 
-measurement, geometry and spatial sense
-biology and health
-positive life skills development
-life labs and gardening
-technology and innovation
-as an aid in cooking and baking projects  
Because of the FoodCycler, her students were proudly representing their school as environmental advocates and teaching their schoolmates about the benefits of diverting food waste.
