Sustain / Good Food Training

Educational materials

The seasonal food calendar floor mat can help guide discussion around seasonality, and get people thinking about what 'seasonal food' means in a world where we're used to buying foods from around the globe all through the year. It will also help cooks, food purchasing managers, retailers and caterers understand the potential benefits of eating more seasonably for menus, budget and the environment. The pack includes a 198cm x 122cm floor mat, background reading and discussion notes, a pack of 50 produce cards and trainer notes for playing the game.
The Lunchtimes Matter! game was developed to train school cooks in customer service skills specific to the school dining experience. It would also be appropriate for training lunchtime supervisors, or for head teachers, teaching staff and governors wishing to understand more about the role of food in schools. The pack contains a 100cm x 143cm floor mat, background reading and trainer notes, and 32 statement cards explaining what matters about lunchtime.
The training packs each cost 150 plus 5.50 postage and packing, a total of 155.50. Proceeds support Greenwich Cooperative Development Agency, a not-for-profit social enterprise, and Sustain. For more information please contact Lorraine at the GCDA, or on 020 8269 4880.  Full contact details at:
