Hundreds of activities are taking place across the country during British Food Fortnight. The event is the biggest showcase of food on the national calendar and celebrates its twelfth year with more activities than ever before for people to get involved, with a particular emphasis on schools, communities and young people.
This year the campaign theme is “Bring Home the Harvest” and includes a Harvest lottery for children; a challenge to find the community organising the most imaginative and inclusive harvest event and a call to the young to create a new harvest anthem, all culminating in a huge British Food Fortnight Harvest celebration at Westminster Abbey. All this, plus the event's annual drive to encourage shops, pubs and restaurants to run British food promotions during the Fortnight.
Celebrations taking place across the country will include promotions, tastings and special menus in pubs, restaurants and shops, special events in care homes for the elderly, scrumptious servings of British food in garden centre cafes, patriotic menus in hospitals, family feasts in children's centres and lots of fun food and drink festivals and country fairs.
