Food fair for everyone

There will plenty of fun to be had at Surfside Primary School''s Fresh Food Fair.

There will be plenty of wholesome fun to tempt families at Surfside Primary School’s Fresh Food Fair on Melbourne Cup weekend.

Students have been cooking up a storm ahead of the Friday 1 November twilight event, bottling sauces and preserves using produce from the school’s award-winning kitchen garden.

Dinner on the night will be taken care of, with everything from curries, sausage rolls, potato and kale pasties, calamari, pancakes, barbecue and a Mad Hatter’s tea party.

The school grounds will be transformed with carnival rides, sideshow games, market stalls, live music, arts and crafts, a white elephant stall, silent auction and a good old-fashioned bake sale.

The Fresh Food Fair is Surfside Primary School’s major fundraising event for the year, with proceeds supporting the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.

The school’s purpose built commercial kitchen and award winning-garden give students the opportunity to gain hands-on cooking experience.

Check out the garden during the fair or buy a seedling potted by students to kick-start your own vegetable patch.

The Fresh Food Fair is on Friday 1 November 1 from 3.15pm to 7.30pm at Surfside Primary School, John Dory Drive, Ocean Grove. Entry is by gold coin donation.
