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.
