A very special end to an action-packed year
School Food Matters is off for a Christmas break after an action-packed year.
Enjoy the highlights of the year in our Christmas newsletter but we have one more treat to share. Our year ended with a sparkle when some very special visitors came along to meet our Young Marketeers at Borough Market. Children from John Ruskin School in Southwark presented their home grown vegetables and Christmas wreaths to The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. The Prince quizzed our green fingered friends about how on earth they managed to grow such enormous celeriac. He was told by Amy (age 10) that it’s all about the compost! With Amy's wise words we'll leave you to enjoy a well earned break and we'll join you again on Wednesday 3 January 2018 for another year of excellent school food and food education fun. Thanks for all your support in 2017!
