School Food Matters Harvest Sale

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Pupils from 10 local schools will be selling seasonal vegetables that they have grown and nurtured from seed.

The Harvest Sale is the culmination of a partnership between Borough Market and School Food Matters, a charity whose mission is to ensure that every child enjoys fresh, sustainable food at school and understands where their food comes from.

The project kicked off back in May, when pupils and teachers were given a masterclass by food writer and horticulturalist Tom Moggach who showed them how to plant and care for their seeds.

Since then, pupils and teachers alike have cared for their crops which include pumpkins, squashes and even some beetroot.

Now, as autumn arrives, the vegetables, will be making their way to Borough Market.

The money raised by the sale of the vegetables will go to FareShare, an award winning charity which seeks to relieve food poverty by rescuing good food that would otherwise go to waste.
