Tesco Online Field Trips

Online Field Trips by The Tesco Eat Happy Project, are interactive visits to farms across the UK and around the world that bring lessons to life for the pupils. We’re bringing the food producers to you!  Children can learn about where their food comes from by chatting live to growers and producers using Google+ hangouts, and so discover how food gets from farm to fork.
