School Food Matters – Young Marketeers at Borough Market 2018

The Young Marketeers programme started with a whole school assembly delivered by FareShare where we learnt about the challenges of food poverty and the absurdity of food waste. All proceeds from the three Young Marketeers sale will be going to FareShare and every £ raised = 4 meals for vulnerable families.

For our summer sale, Chris Collins, Blue Peter Gardener taught our children the art of growing veg from seed and Borough Market traders shared their trade secrets on how to create a winning market stall. In June, we received a visit from a skilled horticulturist and received further tips on how to ensure a bumper crop. School Council set up shop this Wednesday (4th July) alongside Borough Market traders to sell their school grown produce and raised £71.50 in
two hours! What a fantastic achievement for such a worthy cause.
