The aim of the letter is to highlight the role food and farming opportunities and experiences in children's recovery, how they can help to rebuild confidence, improve wellbeing, and offer inspirational learning opportunities for children who have missed out most during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are urging the Education Recovery Commissioner to ensure ALL pupils have hands-on food and farming experiences. The open letter below outlines why supporting access to real world food, farming and countryside experiences is now more important than ever before.
