Schools to Market

In 2019, we kicked off the seventh year of our Schools to Market programme in partnership with Whole Kids Foundation! Our Schools to Market film has been nominated for a Charity Film Award - please vote for us here!

 

 

About Schools to Market

This year, the three big Whole Foods Market stores have taken children on a journey from seed to supermarket with Richmond, High Street Kensington and Fulham Broadway hosting four schools each.

Students experience a chutney and sauce making master class with chef Ruth Quinlan, a trip to a pick-your-own farm to collect their produce, a visit to their local Whole Foods Market store to learn about marketing and finally sell their delicious chutneys at their local Whole Food Market in July to raise money for their schools food education programmes.
 
In addition, the four smaller Whole Foods Market stores have hosted one local primary school in a mini version of the programme. Each school enjoys a day out at a pick-your-own-farm to harvest produce, returns to school to create a chutney and then sells their finished product at their local store in July.
 
Schools can find everything they need to get the most out of this programme by going to our Resource Hub. Just click on the link below to get started.

"I enjoyed going to the farm because it inspired me to be a farmer, because they grow lots of fruit and veg and you don’t have to buy from a store" 
Student, Greenside Primary School
 

"It has been lovely sharing practices with other teachers and children.  The students were in awe at the farm. Giving them the chance to find out about where food comes from was invaluable"
Teacher, The Courtyard AP School
