‘Farm To Fork’ A Great Success At Tesco

Local News

Tesco run a national initiative called ‘Farm To Fork’ which is designed to get children interested in where their food comes from. The initiative is proving popular with schools, Cub Scouts, Brownies and other groups as children have fun, go behind the scenes at their local supermarket and importantly, learn a lot about the food they are eating.

They visit the in store bakery to see how bread is made, visit the fish counter, then the cheese counter where the children can taste different cheeses. They also visit the fruit and vegetable department where they learn how it is grown and where it comes from around the world.

Catherine Tunnicliffe takes the children on the tours at Tesco Extra, Seacroft. She says “I like interacting with children and being able to educate them on the different foods and where they come from.”

Groups who have recently enjoyed the Farm To Fork visit at Seacroft include St Theresa’s Primary School and Beaver and Cubs from the Cookridge Village Scout Group. The Cubs got an opportunity to earn a partner badge after completing their food adventure.

Laura Watkins, Assistant Cub Leader said “The evening was very well organised. The Cubs were very excited and the bakery was particularly popular with the boys and girls. They really enjoyed trying different foods and were delighted to get their badges at the end of the night. I would definitely recommend other groups go and visit.”

Tesco welcome all schools and other groups to participate in the Farm To Fork initiative. For more information visit www.eathappyproject.com/farm-to-fork/
