School Food Matters Summer Sale

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

Children from Southwark and neighbouring boroughs will be selling their school-grown fruit and veg at Borough Market.

The Summer 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.

With the help of funding from United St Saviour's Charity, the programme started back in the spring where pupils were taught some green fingered tips from Blue Peter gardener, Chris Collins.

All the proceeds from the pupils' fruit and veg sales will be donated to FareShare, an award winning charity which seeks to relieve food poverty by rescuing good food that would otherwise go to waste.
