And the winner is ...
Last night the winners of the Foodism 100 shortlist were revealed at Borough Market and School Food Matters was crowned Positive Change Hero!
The Foodism 100 list celebrates those making positive change in the food and drink industry, with 10 businesses shortlisted in 10 categories ranging from best pub to best pop-up. The Positive Change Hero category included luminaries such as Thomasina Miers of Wahaca and and food waste warrior, Tom Hunt but School Food Matters was judged as 2018's hero, a wonderful reflection of the importance placed on food education.
The nomination celebrated our work with Whole Foods Market on Schools to Market which in 2018 moves into its sixth year. We know that SFM couldn't deliver the wonderful array of food education programmes to schools without our project partners; Whole Foods Market, Borough Market, Belazu, ISS Education and the trusts and charities that continue to support this important work. Thank you all and let's continue to work together to find the next generation of cooks, gardeners, farmers and healthy, happy humans!
