Health and hospitals
Organise assemblies or sessions to educate about the benefits of eating more veg.
We would like to see more schools and other child care and education settings incorporating veg in the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities and educate about the benefits of eating more sustainably grown and locally produced vegetables, as well as the importance of eating seasonally.
If you represent a workplace or another organisation you can organise sessions to engage your staff or volunteers, for example by focusing on what’s in season or grown locally.
