WHAT IS THE LOCKDOWN LUNCH 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
COVID-19 has affected how 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.
Food and drink is one of Scotland’s best performing sectors and thrives on innovation and using
the very best quality produce. To make sure we stay on top, especially after COVID-19, our
companies need skilled and innovative employees.
The FDF Lockdown Lunch Challenge has been designed 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
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

A simple calculation to work this out is:
Calculate the cost of your ingredients and packaging + overheads (this covers labour, energy etc)

this) = FINAL SELLING PRICE
