Inner city London kids sell own-brand chutney in high-street supermarket

London’s school children have spent a day this week selling their own-brand home-made chutney’s on the capital’s high street.

 

Partnered with children’s food charity School Food Matters and supermarket chain Whole Foods Market, children selling the chutney have raised more than £12,000 to be put back into food education in participating schools.

 

The charity this year took its 2,500th student to a Surrey farm visit to pick vegetables, create a chutney and learn how to market their produce, before taking to the streets of London to sell their produce.

About 75 per cent of the children taking part in the chutney challenge were from inner city schools and had never been to a farm before.

 

School Food Matters chief executive Stephanie Wood said: “It is a real joy to watch how excited they are to pick their own vegetables and then turn it into a tasty sauce.

 

“The children are learning some important lessons throughout the programme about where food comes from and how it is marketed.”

 

Participating schools include primary schools from Battersea, Camden, Westminster, Hammersmith and Hackney.
