The MarketFresh Schools Program is designed to teach students about the importance of eating fresh fruits and vegetables every day as part of a healthy balanced diet.
This popular program educates over 15,000 students annually about:
- Nutrition of fruit and vegetables
- how fresh fruits and vegetables are grown, harvested and an overview of the supply chain in the Australian fresh produce industry
- Tastes and textures of fruit and vegetables with students encouraged to taste test fresh produce.
The program is tailored to suit junior and senior students studying healthy eating and healthy bodies in conjunction with their curriculum. Book a MarketFresh school visit here, for $180 per session, which can cater for up to 120 students per session. A discount rate of $150 per session applies when booking two or more sessions. Each student takes home the MarketFresh Activity Booklet to share the information with their family.
Our MarketFresh educators can present up to three sessions per day. Each session concludes with an assortment of fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables, sourced from the Melbourne Wholesale Fruit, Vegetable & Flower Market, for the students to enjoy.
