Brixton is braced for a vegetable invasion of Windrush Square and the market on 6 April.

A family fun day running from 11am to 4pm will encourage kids to “Eat Them To Defeat Them”.

Incredible Edible Lambeth is working alongside Veg Power to encourage children to eat more veg. Veg Power’s lively website has games and top tips for schools, families and communities.

There are lots of vegetable recipes on their website and they’re looking for your recipes too! If you can make a healthy meal for four for under £5, send them the recipe and a photograph.

Incredible Edible LEAP – a partnership between IEL and Lambeth Early Action Partnership – has been working since last September with surplus food distributors City Harvest to give young families in four wards in Lambeth a free bag of fruit and vegetables each week and demonstrating how to eat cheaply and healthily.

Supply varies from week to week. One week, the only vegetable that arrived was mooli. The team had to quickly look up mooli recipes to include in the bags and conversations created a buzz.

So, if you can, get on down there this coming Saturday!
