From its beginning Hands-On Food decided that where a request by schools for workshops or food technology classes was made the answer would be ‘yes’, without asking for something in return.  The only requirement being that we would run the Hands-On Food program intact.

The program now enjoys the support of;

  • Local schools (Feilding and Palmerston North)
  • PNCC and the Youth Space
  • PNCET (Palmerston North City Environmental Trust)
  • Wholegrain Organics
  • Students and their families

The dinner was an opportunity to thank these people for teaming up with the aim of providing for;

  • Food technology classes in schools
  • The connection of students with the wider community via product development and face-to-face or online sales and catering
  • Youth Space once per week plant-based cafe
