Because no child should go to school hungry

If you work in the education sector and want to switch to an ethical stationery provider  or if you simply want to recycle your crisp packets we will use the proceeds to feed children at school.

Food2Think

Food2Think is a wonderful charity started by a couple from Stoke that went abroad to teach and came back with a mission to change the world.  The initiative was started by Simon Rimmington and Jeanette Fanthome whilst they were working at The British School in Kathmandu.

Simon became the Project Leader for a sixth form program that helps three primary schools in the Dhading District of Nepal. The sixth formers raised funds through school charity events, which would then be spent on improving the lives and educational experiences of the children at the schools. This included building fences, providing piped water, developing libraries, painting rooms, helping with eye and medical examinations of the children as well as providing teaching resources and  equipment for the children.

They worked with these schools for three years before returning to the UK. However, both Jeanette and Simon wanted to keep helping the children and teachers.  After a number of meetings with teachers at the school, it became clear that a priority was nutrition.

Many of the children work with their families in the mornings before starting school at 10.00 am and arrive at school without eating breakfast, do not have food for lunch and will only eat on returning home after 4.00 pm.  Food2Think now provides lunches for the 100+ children at the school with a varied and healthy menu. The meals are produced on-site and Simon and Jeanette have been supporting this since December 2014.

We want to work with more schools and within the education sector to raise more money for children’s meals. The National Education Union reported a survey that showed  9 out of 10 school leaders had seen poverty and low income having a detrimental impact on school education and that school meals were increasingly providing children’s main  source of nutrition.  We want to bring this to the UK and raise awareness of the thousands of children who go to school without having breakfast. Something as simple as your stationery and office spend will create profit to feed children who need our help and raise awareness of a critical worldwide issue.
