Sustainable Schools Food Procurement Pilot
A pilot project, the purpose which is to examine the practical implications of sourcing food for schools locally. The pilot will look at building upon the work already undertaken by the catering department of PCC, with a view of moving to seasonal, fresher local produce in all junior schools. The project will ascertain what is produced and available locally, the cost implications (both in the cost of food and the preparation of food at the pilot schools), to gauge parental requirements of school meals, measure the reaction of pupils and parents to the change, and see how the project can be introduced as an element into Key Stage II of the junior school curriculum. A full time Project Manager will be recruited on a 1 year fixed term contract to manage the process.
Project Total Cost: £63,160.00
Grant Awarded: £35,000.00
