Farm Fresh Revolution
Our mission is to educate and inspire families and children about healthy eating and influence their future shopping habits.
We want to introduce every adult and child to the benefits of great tasting food. Getting children excited about cooking and eating fresh food is one of our primary objectives.
So, by distributing our top-quality produce and easy-to-follow recipes through local primary schools, we hope to inspire both parents and children to cook more homemade, delicious family meals.
We buy the food direct from local farmers, load it up into our refrigerated vans and set up our ‘market-stall’ at several local primary schools on a Friday afternoon during the school term.
Manned primarily by volunteers, we chat to parents as they choose their produce, offering cooking tips and advice and encourage the children to swap their after-school sweets for a piece of tasty fruit!
