Schools have a critical role to play in getting children eating vegetables – through learning, play and school food.

Our schools programme has been designed by top educators, public health professionals, school caterers and our creative team, in line with the curriculum and government healthy-eating guidelines.

Cash Prizes for Schools

In 2019 many of the schools we supported went further than we expected – some just blew us away with their creativity and the dedication of teachers, the whole school team and the kids. So, for 2020 we have a few cash prizes to acknowledge those schools who really go for it

Star prize: £1,000 unrestricted funds

4 x Runners-up: £250 unrestricted funds

Only participating schools can enter.


Caterers Challenge

We love chefs. After all we were founded by Jamie and Hugh. In 2019 we were inspired by the many school chefs who created vegetable displays that can only be described as stunning. So, for 2020 we are challenging caterers in schools across the UK to wow us with their creativity and the inspiration they bring to the children they feed.

Star prize: £500 for the catering team

2 x Runners-up: £250 for the catering teams
