FAIR FOOD: Children at Woodhall Primary School in Sudbury.

Pupils from a Sudbury school were visited by workers from the town’s Sainsbury’s store as they got a lesson in where their food comes from.

As part of Fairtrade Fortnight, youngsters at Woodhall Primary School in Mayflower Way learnt about how buying food, which is produced in a certain way, can help support better working conditions and prices for farmers across the world.

Alison Sawyer, teacher of Elm class in Year 2, who, along with Beech class, took part in Thursday’s visit, said the day had supplemented teaching about Fairtrade earlier this year.

“They learnt all about where they get food from and the store brought in a pineapple, chocolate and tea bags,” she said. “They really enjoyed the tasting.”
