Fuel For School

Fuel For School is a revolutionary program through which primary schools can join The Real Junk Food Project (TRJFP) in the global fight against food waste. We will help your school to take direct environmental action and make a positive change in your local community. Our educational program enables you to use this exciting environmental campaign as a live and active learning environment for your pupils.

A bit of background

The program was conceived at Richmond Hill Primary School in Leeds, which lead to the headteacher, Nathan Atkinson, being shortlisted for the Varkey Foundation Global Teaching prize. We are now working to introduce this fantastic program at all primary schools in the Sheffield region, starting with 2 pilot schools: Greenhill Primary School and Walkley Primary School. This short video will give you an impression.

When you join our program, the Real Junk Food Project Sheffield will make a weekly delivery of food to your school for a food market. For parents and families this food market provides access to fresh and healthy food. For children the food and the market are used as an exciting tactile and active learning environment in which they can develop skills and affinities around food, fairness and sustainability. For the environment you will be saving up to 20 tons of carbon by helping us use this food that would have otherwise gone to landfill.
