Morrisons will be helping children in Worksop understand where food comes from.

The supermarket has launched a fresh free programme called Academy of Food.

It will help school children in Worksop from seven to 14-years-old, to discover how Morrisons food is produced.

Schools in the area will be encouraged to visit their local Morrisons to see the journey of food, from field and sea through to point of sale. Whilst in store, children can also learn from Academy-trained butchers, bakers and fishmongers, to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare healthy dishes.

Children will also have lessons on farming, fishing, baking and growing.

Dan Turner, store manager at Morrisons Worksop said: “We think it’s really important that children understand exactly where their fresh food comes from, which is why we think we’re in a unique position to respond to the recent curriculum changes. We know that our in store we have a great way of telling the wider food story and the Academy of Food will allow us to do this.”
