Through a mix of fun-related activities including growing seeds, West Sussex Library Service is helping children to learn more about the importance of food for growing minds and bodies. Children can watch food-related stories online, take part in competitions, try cooking and science experiments with food, as well as planting seeds. They can pick up a bag containing all they need for the activities from the library door.
At a number of library locations, food rescue, and education charity, UK Harvest will have a pop-up presence, sharing activity sheets, recipe ideas, and more to promote issues of healthy eating and avoiding food waste.
Gerard Vonk, Tangmere Airfield Nurseries’ General Manager, said: “We’re delighted to help with the food project and these fantastic holiday activities. Thanks to Rijk Zwaan UK who very kindly contributed the seeds. I hope we can encourage some children to be the next growers of the future!”
