School pupils learn to love food

All three of Shildon’s primary schools took part in the Love Food Roadshow recently; a community engagement element of the Bishop Auckland Food Festival.

The outreach roadshow involved nine local primary schools and two adult groups over the week long programme in three different community venues, including Jubilee Fields Community Centre in Shildon, as well as offering open community sessions for all ages each day after school hours.

The roadshow, funded by County Durham Community Foundation and local councillors’ funding, delivered healthy eating and fun in the kitchen showing that the kitchen is not simply a place to cook, but is a place to experiment and have fun as a family while learning how to eat healthily.

Chef Clover Hutson and Alex Rigg hosted the hour long fun, interactive sessions which were enjoyed by all who took part.
