BFB stands for Balfour Farmers’ Bag. A brainchild of a Balfour Juniors parent, it means We Love Local deliver bags of gorgeous veg to the school every Friday.

It works out cheaper even than if shopping with our large local supermarket (we did the maths) and you also get recipes to help you use your veggies creatively – why boil a carrot when you can roast it in balsamic vinegar and rosemary?

All you have to do to get your £5 of vegetables is pick up an order form from the entrance lobby, fill it in, write a cheque and leave the form and money in the special BFB post box which is also in the lobby.

Although this is all good stuff in terms of healthy schools and healthy eating, the FBA also gets £1 from each  bag sold. This money is ring-fenced to fund projects to do with gardening and cooking.
