Rabobank sponsors taste lessons

Albert Sikkema

Rabobank will be the main sponsor of the Food Education Platform, to support the programme of taste lessons at Wageningen UR.

The taste lessons, developed at Wageningen University, have been offered to more than 4500 primary schoolchildren since 2006. With the support of the Rabobank, the teaching programme is now being extended with advanced modules in which the emphasis lies on where food comes from. Children will grow their own vegetables, as well as visiting a supermarket, a farm and a market garden. They will cook for themselves too.
