Schools to Market

We've now completed the sixth year of our Schools to Market programme in partnership with Whole Kids Foundation and we're already looking forward to 2019! We've put together this animation to show you what it's all about it .

News from our 2018 programme

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

Students experienced 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 sold their delicious chutneys at their local Whole Food Market in July, raising £1,412.43 for their schools food education programmes.
Meanwhile the four smaller Whole Foods Market stores hosted one local primary school in a mini version of the programme. Each school enjoyed a day out at a pick-your-own-farm to harvest produce, returned to school to create a chutney and then sold their finished product at their local store.
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
