PRESENTATION Teacher Mentor: Dr. Illuyomade Raphael Funwa Members: Ernest Lee(16) (Leader) Josh Lee(17) Nicholas Ting(18) Ong Juan Xun(19) Declan Pan(20) Introduction Wastage of Food We, students at RI waste food almost everyday when some people starve. Singapore has an abundance of food Many lower developed countries are currently facing a food shortage issue How can we efficiently reduce food wastage among Raffles Institution Year 1 students? Research Question Objectives of Research To gather information on why students waste food Solutions to help Year 1s waste less food Methodology-Survey Carried out among Year 1s around the canteen, Chill@RIB and in classrooms. Survey was to find out: Do Year 1s waste food? Why Year 1s waste food? Methodology-Interview Objectives: Gather more in-depth information about reasons for food wastage Possible solutions Gather opinion on food wastage in RI Results-Survey Unfinished food is mostly thrown away. Food is mainly wasted because of overly large portions or quality of food. Food wastage is not too serious an issue Those who are seen wasting food are mostly ignored Results-Interview Food wastage is caused mostly by the student’s attitude Making different portions of food may help solve this issue Implications The quality of food is not up to expectations The portions of food may be too big Limitations Our survey had a small sample size of 30 Solutions might only suit Year 1s due to the nature of research. This might not help the school as a whole Recommendations-Solutions Reduce the portion of food and the prices along with it Raise awareness on the problem of food wastage Conclusion-Solutions a physical solution which focuses on garnering the short term effect changing the mindsets of people Acknowledgments Dr Raphael Funwa (Teacher Mentor)

Our work could have been much better and improved if some group members were more motivated and focused. We feel we were quite productive but with better motivation and communication, we would have done a much better job. To further extend this project, instead of just targetting Year 1s, we would target the whole school. Tay, E. (2012, Feb 6). [Web log message].
