Seed to Plate - inspiring children to grow, cook and eat good food

Schools in Barking and Dagenham are changing their food culture and tackling obesity with an innovative public health funded 'Seed to Plate' project, led by the School Improvement Service and supported by Barking and Dagenham Catering Services. 

As part of the Seed to Plate programme, pupils from schools across Barking and Dagenham took part in a ‘Field to Fork’ potato harvest - a food growing initiative with a competition. An award ceremony took place for the class from each school harvesting the most potatoes and pupils enjoyed a celebration lunch using the home-grown potatoes.
