The fairandfunky Harvest Rice Challenge

rice challenge

fairandfunky invite you to join their 90kg rice challenge!

Did you know that a rice farmer from Malawi needs to sell 90kg of rice to be able to afford to send their child to school for a year?

In September fairandfunky launch the “Harvest Rice Challenge” when we aim to sell 90kg of rice three times over to change the world for farmers and their families.  We would like your help, and you can join us in three ways:

Rice step 1 – “From Farm to Fork” Assembly

Book a fairandfunky assembly for your school – through an interactive 15 minutes assembly we will ignite interest and enthusiasm with the students about “Where does rice come from?” and how, we, as individuals can use our buying power to change the world! Ideally, we would like every school who books an assembly to buy a bag of rice.

The assembly will empower each student to think about the steps they can take to change the world.

Rice Step 2 – “From Farm to Fork” Workshop

Book a NEW fairandfunky workshop for your school or youth group. Our new “Farm to Fork Workshop” focuses on Malawi, the farmers, the culture, and the journey of rice from the farms to our forks in the UK. Lasting 60 minutes students will be engaged through interactive workshops, role-play, activities, video presentations and a quiz. The workshop costs £150 and includes a bag of rice! Each school will receive a fairandfunky certificate, and a “Farm to Fork” resource pack to enhance further learning.

The workshop will develop knowledge and understanding on life in Malawi and quantify the benefits of Fairtrade for students. The workshop will be adapted to suit either KS1 or KS2.

Rice Step 3 – Buy the rice!

We invite everyone to join us in the challenge and buy rice! We welcome the opportunity to have a fairandfunky pop-up shop at coffee mornings, at your place of work, in schools. Please get in touch to arrange your own pop-up shop.  You will also be able to buy rice at  from September 1st.

Selling 90kg of rice creates a link between the pupils and the farmers in Malawi.

Kilombero Rice is East Africa’s favourite top quality rice: Price per 1kg: £3.20
