In 2018, twelve lucky schools from across the UK will embark on a journey from seed to supermarket with three Whole Foods Market stores taking part; Richmond, High Street Kensington and Fulham Broadway.
Students will experience a chutney and sauce making master class with chef Ruth Quinlan
, a trip to a pick-your-own farm to collect their produce, a visit to their local Whole Foods Market store to learn about marketing and will finally sell their delicious chutneys at their local Whole Food Market in July to raise money for their schools.
This year, we've also invited each of the four smaller Whole Foods Market stores to host a local primary school in a mini version of the programme. Each school will enjoy a day out at a pick-your-own-farm to harvest produce, will return to school to create a chutney and then sell their finished product at their local store in July.
Schools can find everything they need to get the most out of this programme by going to our Resource Hub. Just click on the link below to get started.
Schools to Market 2018 Resource Hub
"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
