I am personally thrilled to be able to announce that our Auckland Schools Poster Competition has gone live! We have teamed up with a brand new charitable trust, still setting up, that is to be devoted to food education for kiwi kids called Feed The Future Foundation.
A group of highly experienced teachers from across New Zealand have come together to help create a wide range of resources, activities, experiments and lesson plans for other teachers to use in their classrooms. These are based on not just fermented foods but also the basic principles of healthy eating and where food comes from. This is just a start of what the Feed The Future Foundation wishes to accomplish in the long term.
I highly recommend that you get your children involved in this amazing competition. Every student entry will automatically get a FREE entry to Ferment! Festival. Atop of this there are a bunch of amazing gift baskets valued at up to $500 gifted to the absolute winning poster. Each poster is also going to be shown at Ferment! Festival as part of the Feed The Future Foundations large educational art display.
Not only that but $1 from each ticket bought will go straight to Feed the Future Foundation.
We believe in giving back in every way we can and what better way then donate money going towards resources, textbooks and gardens for kiwi kids!
