Sale Success Across The Country
It's been a jam-packed month of food education fun!
20 schools from across the country sold their delicious chutneys and sauces at Whole Foods Market stores in Richmond, Fulham, HSK & Cheltenham as part of the Schools to Market programme, raising £1,412.43 for their food education programmes. Our Scottish schools will be selling their products at WFM Giffnock on September 21st.
Meanwhile, 10 schools set up shop at Borough Market for the Young Marketeers Summer Sale, making £447 for FareShare to provide 1,790 meals for families in need.
And finally, the first year of our brand new project, Know your Onions wrapped up with secondary school students selling their school-grown produce in markets across the city, making a commendable £519 for more food education activities.
