Children from Southwark and neighbouring boroughs will be

The Summer Sale is the culmination of a partnership between
Borough Market and School Food Matters, a charity whose
mission is to ensure that every child enjoys fresh,
sustainable food at school and understands where their food
comes from. With the help of funding from United St
Saviour's Charity, the programme started back in the spring
where pupils were taught some green fingered tips from Blue
Peter gardener, Chris Collins. All the proceeds from the
pupils' fruit and veg sales will be donated to FareShare, an
award winning charity which seeks to relieve food poverty by
rescuing good food that would otherwise go to waste.
