Schools to Market

We have now completed the fifth year of our Schools to Market programme in partnership with Whole Kids Foundation.

Schools to Market has won two prestigious awards, celebrating the winning School Food Matters/Whole Foods Market partnership. Read more about the Charity Times award here and the Foodism 100 award here.
In 2017, twenty lucky schools from across the UK embarked on a journey from seed to supermarket with five Whole Foods Market stores taking part. Schools made a total of £1,412.43 selling their home-made chutneys and sauces across stores in Richmond, Fulham Broadway, High Street Kensington, Cheltenham and Giffnock. 
Students experienced a chutney and sauce making master class from chef Ruth Quinlan, a visit to a pick-your-own farm to collect their produce, a visit their local Whole Foods Market store on a marketing mission and finally ended their journey in July at their local store where their sauces and chutneys were sold to raise money for their schools. 
This year we gave parents the opportunity to get involved too! To encourage them to cook with their children, we set them the same challenge - to create a tasty chutney, relish or sauce and send us their review. Check out our fantastic winners from Fulham & Cheltenham with their chutney creations.

"The best bit of the project was tasting new foods and learning how to prepare fruit and vegetables. I leant to try lots of new things" Y4 pupil, Greatfield Park Primary School

"It was very beneficial for the students to be exposed to the marketing process – they learnt about knowledge of sourcing produce, ingredients and how to sell to customers. Invaluable things that they wouldn’t learn in a classroom environment" Teacher, Bevington Primary School
