Just in time for the Spring School Holidays, the Little Food Festival will be showcasing the power of food to inspire learning with an incredible line up of at-home do-it-yourself activities, entertaining videos including a live stream on the Fed Square website and interactive content the kids are sure to love.
Drawing on the themes of environment, health and community, the Little Food Festival will include videos of activities and stories, accompanied by a downloadable booklet full of activity sheets so that kids can learn and play along as they watch.
The videos will be hosted by the much-loved Alice Zaslavsky and will feature cameo appearances from sustainability superstars Sage Garden, Oz Harvest, Afrohub, ArtPlay, Lentil As Anything, the Royal Botanical Garden, Beci Orpin, Stephanie Alexander, Costa Georgiadis, Julia Ostro, and Pawa Foods.
