Schools across the UK use British Food Fortnight as an opportunity to teach young people about food: about the diverse and delicious range of food available, the benefits of healthy eating and about the pleasures of eating quality, fresh, seasonal and regionally distinct  produce.

For 2020, Welsh Produce are introducing ‘Wales Day’ on Thursday 1st October which has been included in the British Food Fortnight schedule in support of food and drink producers in Wales.

The Love British Food organisers have produced this Resource Pack specifically for teachers. We hope it will encourage you to run special lessons and activities for young people during Llangollen Food Festival and British Food Fortnight and that you will be inspired to continue similar activity throughout the year.

Taking part in building Wales Food Fortnight is a good opportunity to gain some local publicity for your school.  Many schools taking part across the UK in last year’s event were featured in their local papers and some were even featured in their local papers and some were even featured on television.  Media coverage can be a good way of thanking teachers, parents and children for their involvement.  All the information you need to help you gain some local publicity – including sample media releases, invitations to issue to journalists and full list of media contacts in each region is available here: https://lovebritishfood.co.uk/teachers-zone/
