The MarketFresh Schools Program has been operating in schools around Victoria for over 25 years.
In the last year alone, the program educated almost 15,000 students about the importance of fruit and vegetables in a balanced and healthy diet. Visiting almost 100 schools and corporate organisations throughout the year, the participants gain an understanding of the paddock to plate, nutritional benefits of what they are consuming and tips on the best ways to keep produce fresh.
With children’s taste buds changing every 21 days, students are encouraged to try fresh seasonal produce direct from the Melbourne Market, in a safe and secure setting. Best of all, new participant get to take home the MFSP Activity booklet to continue their learning with family members at home.
A special thanks to our sponsors and suppliers, as without you this program would not be possible.
