Garden to Table is changing the way children think about food
The Garden to Table programme is changing the way children approach and think about food. All around the country, we want to see children enthusiastically getting their hands dirty and learning how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food.
Established in 2008, Garden to Table now works with thousands of primary-school-aged children all across New Zealand, helping them discover a love for fresh food and skills that will last a lifetime. The programme is curriculum-integrated and provides real-world learning opportunities, taking learning outside the classroom.

Introducing the Ten Million Meals Project
What if every primary school in New Zealand had one year level taking part in Garden to Table?
The simple answer is that students all over New Zealand would grow, harvest, prepare, share and enjoy 10 Million garden-inspired Meals, each and every year.
This is what we hope to achieve over the next five years, with your help. Not only will children eat fresh, nourishing food each week, but they will also learn skills that will last a lifetime. We strongly believe that Garden to Table can be part of a sustainable, exciting future, focused on the health and wellbeing of our young people.
