Funding Opportunity - Food for Thought Education Fund
8th May 2017
Education Scotland: Food for Thought Education Fund.
The Food for Thought Education Fund gives financial support to develop Food and Health as a context for learning. The fund aims to improve practitioner confidence in providing progressive, high quality learning experiences which help to embed food education into the ethos of the establishment. It also provides an opportunity to plan and implement learning experiences which build sustainability and capacity for future development.
Now in its fifth year, the Fund allows Local Authority Schools and Early Learning and Childcare settings to apply for grants of up to £3000 to develop projects that support the aims of the Fund. (Note - ASN establishments in the independent sector are also eligible to apply). Establishments may apply individually or as part of a cluster of schools from their education authority.
It is essential that food based projects include a business or community link. Business in the Community Scotland is a partner in the Food for Thought Fund and can help establishments to find a business/community link if help is required.
