National Allotment Week 2015 and Flavourfest 2015
The Food is Fun team worked with "The Plymouth Show" and "Flavourfest 2015" this year for a fun filled week. As a partner of the Grow, Share, Cook Project we offered children’s activities including cooking demonstrations aimed at families with children. Here are some pictures of our week:
Promoting Healthy Eating for everyone in South West England
Food Is Fun and Cities of Service Plymouth are looking for volunteers to help us increase the number of households in Plymouth that regularly cook and eat fruit and vegetables. You can register at the Our Plymouth website and we are really looking forward to working on this exciting project.
Food Is Fun encourages people of all ages to explore food in a fun way to promote healthy eating for their future
Food Is Fun creates events for all ages, from Surestart Centres to Universities, from Schools to Care Homes. Each event is customised to fit in with the curriculum, specific requirements, diets or projects.
Food Is Fun is available for an hour, a half-day, a full-day or weekly events or courses. Using hands-on activities, demonstrations using our “travelling kitchens” or simple lectures, these unique events focus on the fun of cooking and how to produce affordable healthy food.
We believe that lots of good work has been done to improve the quality of food in schools and other public organisations such as the NHS, but unless food is perceived to be "tasty", and is practical to cook or prepare, people will not eat it - no matter how healthy it is.
Our Work working with communities since 2008:
How Food Is Fun can help a school's Ofsted Inspection
In February 2015 Ofsted announced that they will be inspecting on healthy eating and food culture within their new "Common Inspection Framework" from September 2015. Supporting the School Food Plan the new Framework includes a judgement on whether schools are successfully supporting pupils to gain 'knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy, including through exercising and healthy eating'. We anticipate that inspectors will be prompted to look for a range of evidence extended across the whole school approach – Working with Food Is Fun and our new , supports both the new Primary Curriculum and the new Ofsted Inspection Framework - helping your school with its Ofsted Rating.
The Plymouth Big Food
Event (BFE), took place across the city of Plymouth from

Ranging from a single portable unit for an individual chef up to a professional kitchen suitable for large food festivals.
