Organix School Food Hero Award

The Soil Association has awarded the Organix School Food Hero Award to Haworth Primary School Gardening Club founder Steve Thorpe. The Organix School Food Award recognises one special individual who has worked hard behind the scenes to make a real difference to school meals in their area.

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and the pioneering 'dinner lady' and Soil Association school meals policy adviser, Jeanette Orrey, presented the Soil Association's School Food Awards at the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham on Thursday 23 November.

Jamie Oliver said, "There are lots of winners in the Soil Association School Food Awards the schools which serve healthy, tasty meals, the local and organic producers who provide the ingredients, and above all the kids who are going to grow up knowing what good food is and where it comes from."

Lizzie Vann, founder of Organix, said, "The Organix Food Hero award is very close to the heart of Organix. We never underestimate the power of one person with vision and a passion to change things for the better. We are delighted to recognise someone so deserving of the award as Steve."
