The Food for Life Partnership is a network of more than 2,000 schools and communities across the country, committed to transforming food culture.
The scheme aims to reconnect young people with farms and inspire families to cook and grow.
The project has just been nominated for the National Lottery Awards - and needs people to vote for it.

The celebrity chef said: "What makes this project so inspiring is the way that young people in more than 2,000 schools are now learning about real food in a hands-on way - growing and cooking it themselves and even rearing their own chickens."
All schools can join the Food for Life Partnership and receive support, guidance and resources to transform their food culture. This has been made possible by the five-year lottery-funding the programme has received.
