Food Discovery

A full in-school cooking, growing and food-confidence programme.

In our Food Discovery sessions, led by experienced Country Trust Coordinators, children grow their own food, learn cooking skills and how to make some healthy, cheap and delicious recipes. 

They explore all aspects of food through farm visits, meeting food heroes, running a playground market and even preparing and sharing a Harvest Feast. We provide a safe environment for tasting food so that children develop food confidence, and we build and share knowledge that helps children to begin to make informed food choices. 

We work with schools to create a Food Discovery programme which suits them. We offer CPD and can work with parents too.
