Student produce sales
This week, primary and secondary school students from across the capital will be setting up shop to sell their school-grown veg to the public.
Our Young Marketeers Summer Sale schools will be at Borough Market tomorrow from 11am to 1.30pm, bringing with them an abundance of fresh summer produce to sell. Every £ raised will enable FareShare to provide four meals for vulnerable families across London.
On Thursday 5 July, the second year of the Know your Onions programme will culminate with 14 secondary schools selling veg at their local street market to raise money for their food education activities. Find out where and when things kick off here.
