Details of the FDF Scotkand Lockdown Challenge:
Food and drink has never felt so important to everyone. The impact that COVID-19 has had on every individual’s way of life has made us all much more aware of the food we eat, where it comes from, who makes it and its effect on our health and wellbeing.
COVID-19 has affected how Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Scotland work and a lot of the work that we planned to do with schools has had to be postponed. So, we thought we would amend one of our schools competitions to allow pupils to take part from home and include their families in the activity.
FDF Scotland has designed a Lockdown Lunch Challenge to help young people, parents and their educators and carers better understand what our industry is all about, including; where our food ingredients come from, how they are produced and who is involved in making them. The Challenge will also help young people understand the skills needed to help them into a great career in food and drink.
The FDF Scotland Lockdown Challenge is a fun challenge for young people (of any age), parents, carers and educators to take part in and an opportunity to encourage a better understanding of:
- The food chain from field to fork and sea to plate
- Where food comes from
- Supporting educated food choices
- How food is made
How to get involved!

We are setting a few criteria for you to bear in mind and your product MUST!
• Use at least one item of local Scottish produce
• Contribute to one of your 5 a day
• Appeal to children developing the products and their fellow pupils or family members
