Tesco Gillingham launch their Farm to Fork School Initiative

I was invited along to Tesco Gillingham last night to join Schools from around the area attending for the launch of the Tesco Farm to Fork initiative.

The Farm to Fork is part of the Tesco Eat Happy Project which is part of their  long-term commitment to help tackle children’s diet-related health problems.

The Farm to Fork initiative is dedicated to helping young people understand where food comes from and is the first of many from the Tesco Eat Happy Project which is dedicated to helping young people have a better relationship with their food.

What I liked about it is that it is delivered using age-appropriate, curriculum-linked materials and everything that supports the initiative has been developed with teachers, education professionals and nutrition experts.

Tesco are also granting some financial assistance to schools to pay for transport costs.

I am pictured above with the Tesco Community Relations Officer Elaine Cutting, the Store Manager Hayley Wilson and teachers from Abbey Court School, Featherby Infant and Junior Schools and Swingate School.

Also present but not in the photograph was Hempstead Junior School.

We were also extremely pleased to welcome the Member of Parliament Rehman Chishti MP who is pictured below with the myself and the Store Manager Hayley Wilson.
