School Food Matters

The mission of School Food Matters is to teach children about food and to improve children’s access to healthy, sustainable food during their time at school.

It provides fully funded food education programmes to schools. Its experience delivering these programmes informs and strengthens its campaigns, bringing the voices of children, parents and teachers to government policy.

Garden Rehoming

Where can you visit this garden after the Show?

The garden has now been reimagined into two sensory pocket gardens and relocated to two schools - Alec Reed Academy in Ealing, West London and The Beacon Church of England Primary School in Liverpool. These spaces provide valuable educational resources where children can grow vegetables and observe wildlife, as well as find a peaceful place to take time out from the busyness of their days.

"All of our children are in need of a little extra TLC. Amid the busyness of day-to-day life, this garden is somewhere the children will be able to find small pockets of inner silence which will allow healing and help them to feel more positive, productive and to be kind.” Headteacher at Alec Reed Academy in London
