Tuesday January 23 saw Whitecraig Primary launch the new and exciting initiative of a Community Food Co-operative. Targeting all members of the local community, the aim is for our P7 pupils and Health Promotion Group to serve subsidized fresh fruit, vegetables and eggs on a weekly basis to all stakeholders, including those who have no association with the school.
P7 took up the challenge of producing eye catching advertising posters for display around the village as well as mail shots to those households with no direct link to Whitecraig Primary.
As the accompanying photographs show our first venture into the world of retail sales was a huge success. Not only were the senior pupils undertaking ‘real maths’ in a pressurised situation, but we mangaed to attract into school many members of the local community who would otherwise not have crossed our threshold.
So forget Tesco’s Home Delivery! Come to Whitecraig Primary School every Tuesday between 11:30am and 1:30pm to buy your fresh fruit and veg at amazingly low prices!!’

One thought on “Whitecraig Primary Community Food Cooperative”
This project has really captured my attention. It’s such an untapped market and the way the kids have chosen to market to those who have no connection to the school is good for the business and good for the school. What a great project!
