Food Discovery Taster

“I’m really proud of myself today because I have tasted new things.”  Pupil, Thomas Bewick School

Our Food Discovery taster comprises a farm visit PLUS two or more pupil sessions from the selection below.

Cooking session: Children learn to cook with the produce they have seen growing on their farm visit.  For example, the children might visit a potato farm and then learn to cook a delicious leek and potato soup.

Growing session: Children learn to grow the same sort of produce they saw growing on their farm visit and investigate the mini-beasts living in their school grounds.

Enterprise session: Children run a mini farmers' market at school for parents.  They conduct research to decide what will sell best. Having promoted the market, the children order the produce they wish to sell, weigh it out, price it and sell it!

This programme costs from £1,200 but we can supplement school budgets with our own fundraising, in order to make as many programmes as possible a reality.

Our Food Discovery programme is aimed at primary schools with a higher than average perentage of children eligible for Free School Meals.  We also work with Nurture Groups, PRUs, Young Carers, SEN/D schools or other groups supporting disadvantaged chidlren.
