Saint Nathaniel’s Academy – Where does food come from?

Saint Nathaniel’s Academy, has linked up with a farm to teach pupils about where their food comes from.

Every fortnight mums and dads can also pick up a package containing two different meats, onions, potatoes, fruit and vegetables to prepare a delicious and nutritious meal at home.

The project – called Farm Fresh Revolution – is being led by Packington Free Range Farm, which delivers the freshly-prepared parcels from Barton-under-Needwood every other Friday.

Carly Wright, Vice-Principal at Saint Nathaniel’s, said the scheme was proving popular.

She added: “It is a fantastic initiative. Once every two weeks parents can come in and collect their fresh food. It’s not just fruit and veg, there’s meat too.

“There used to be a small recommended donation but now it is all free. It is open to all parents or guardians with children at the school. The whole idea is to get fresh produce into the homes and to encourage parents to make a meal from scratch.

“The children get to learn about food production and there are recipes for parents and children to work through together.”

Parents said their children were now more keen to try different fruit and vegetables since the project launched.
