In a push to combat food-related health issues in children in Devon and Cornwall, we’ve joined forces with organic veg box company Riverford, to deliver our training to school chefs from across the region. 

We want to ensure that 40,000 children in the region have access to nutritious, freshly made meals every day as part of a wider drive to ‘vegucate’ the future, tackling food-related ill health by teaching children how to grow and enjoy fresh produce.   

This week, the first graduates of the Riverford-funded School Chef Educator programme, celebrated completing their studies and getting ready to fuel the future!

ITV West Country (south west) came along to chat to the graduates, our team and Riverford, all about the new vegucation initiative in the region. To see the full segment, watch below. 

Thanks to ITV for shining a spotlight on our work.
