The Food for Thought Education Fund gives financial support to develop Food and Health as a context for learning. The fund aims to improve practitioner confidence in providing progressive, high quality, skills based learning experiences which help to embed food education into the ethos of the establishment. It also provides an opportunity to plan and implement learning experiences which build sustainability and capacity for future development.
Now in its seventh year, the Fund allows Local Authority Schools and Early Learning and Childcare settings to apply for grants of up to £2000 to develop projects that support the aims of the Fund. (Note - ASN establishments in the independent sector are also eligible to apply). Establishments may apply individually or as part of a cluster of schools from their education authority.
