Why is the food free?

We want to introduce every adult and child to the benefits of healthy and great tasting food. Getting children excited about eating more healthily is one of our primary objectives. So by distributing our food through local schools, we can educate the school children and their parents about the virtues of freshly grown, healthy food.

 

We get the food direct from local farmers, package it up
into separate family bags and we distribute it through a number of local schools.

Ugly Veggies

Some fruit and vegetables aren’t the right shape for supermarkets, or farmers might produce more than the supermarkets want. We can ensure this healthy food is eaten by including them in our bags. This means less waste, which the farmers are very keen on after all their hard work growing the food.

Understanding

If we know where our food comes from and how it’s grown we can understand how important it is to eat well and not waste food.

Working Together

Working with schools and families to help children to understand the importance of fresh food for their health and wellbeing, as well as supporting people in learning new tasty recipes and how best to cook with the ingredients in the grocery bags.

We’ve teamed up with The Children’s Food Trust to inspire you and your children to try out new dishes. Check out their website Let’s Get Cooking which gives lots of recipe ideas, with videos and tips on how to prepare food, and things to cook with your children.

More About Health

Vitamins and minerals in fresh food are much better for us than the ones we get in vitamin tablets. They are essential to keep our bodies healthy, have good energy, and keep our brains working well.
