Food for Life Awards


Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall dishes out school food awards
Yesterday, ethical and sustainable food hero Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall presented Food for Life Partnership Silver and Gold Awards to schools, who have excelled in creating a healthy and climate-friendly food culture within their schools and communities.

The ceremony took place at  Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall said: “What makes this project so inspiring is the way that young people in more than a thousand schools are now learning about real food in a hands-on way, growing and cooking it themselves and even rearing their own chickens! I would urge the Government to do more to encourage all schools to follow their lead.”

Children and teachers took tours of Sheepdrove Organic Farm – seeing the Organic Free-Range Turkeys just before the birds go on their Christmas holidays. Our award-winning guests ate in the unique Eco Conference Centre dining room and took foodie lessons in the marvellous Food for Life cooking bus!
