The Tesco Eat Happy Project
Our collaboration with Tesco on the Farm to Fork Trail for our younger members
Two years of discovering food the fun way
Almost 80,000 young members have achieved their Eat Happy badge after heading to a Tesco Farm to Fork Trail over the past two years. The programme has helped girls enjoy a heathier and happier relationship with food through interactive activities held in Tesco stores. Overall, thanks to Tesco’s Eat Happy project, over two million children in the UK have learned about healthy eating while having fun.
After two years, Tesco has decided to stop running Farm to Fork Trails and focus on a few core community projects. These include Bags of Help and Community Food Connection – both of which are still available for Girlguiding units.
Brownies having fun on their Farm to Fork trail
I’ve already booked a Farm to Fork Trail with my local Tesco – what should I do?
Tesco will keep running all Farm to Fork Trails up to 31 January 2018, so if your Trail is booked before then you’ll be able to go as normal. But after this date, Tesco can’t guarantee that your Farm to Fork Trail will take place. If your Trail’s booked from February 2018 onwards, please get in touch with your local Tesco. They may still facilitate it but sadly we can’t guarantee that this will be the case.
I’d like to take my unit on a Farm to Fork Trail before they finish on 31 January 2018 – how long have I got left to book?
Unfortunately you won’t be able to use the online booking facility, but you can contact your local store to see if they can book you onto a session.
Does this mean our partnership with Tesco is over?
Girlguiding units can still take part in their two other initiatives - the Community Food Connection and Bags of Help projects. We’ll let you know in the future if we partner with any more opportunities or activities you can do in your unit, so keep an eye out on social media and in ‘Discover, grow’.
