Our Schools Programme offers a way for primary schools in London to actively contribute to reducing food waste.
Free of charge, we provide a weekly delivery of healthy surplus food that is made available to children and their families to take home and enjoy. Our interactive assembly helps pupils (and staff!) to understand the reasons why so much food in our country is wasted, what happens to food if it’s not eaten and, importantly, what we can all do together to stop wasting food!
If you would like to volunteer on our Schools Programme please register your interest here. You could run assemblies in primary schools, recruit new schools, pop in to help a school run their market stall or help with admin/database work.

School holidays can be a stressful time for families who rely on meals provided at schools as a regular source of food. This is why, during the school holidays, we do everything we can to make sure that the food that would usually go to a school is delivered to somewhere that is holding activities for children, including holiday clubs, community centres and adventure playgrounds.

We get to spend some more time together, but doing something different that breaks with our routine -and certainly better than just sitting watching telly all the time!
