Scotland’s Food Secretary, Richard Lochhead, has announced a further £800,000 will go towards enhancing food education in schools across Scotland.
This brings the total food education funding to more than £5 million since it began in 2010.
The Cabinet Secretary was due to visit Holy Rood High School in Edinburgh today (Thursday, March 10) where he will meet with pupils who have benefited from the funding.
The school will receive a grant from the Food For Thought Fund, which makes up part of the overall programme of work being supported.
The programme, which also supports a number of other food-education projects, provides additional opportunities for pupils to learn about all aspects of food and supports the aims of Curriculum for Excellence.
