Cully & Sully and Grow It Yourself (GIY) today (28 February) launched its national competition 'Give Peas a Chance' in a Waterford secondary school.
The aim behind the initiative is to 'discover Ireland’s next young food entrepreneurs'.
Secondary schools across the country have been invited to take part to grow their own peas and to devise a soup recipe which will be produced by Cully & Sully.
Cullen Allen of Cully & Sully said, “We are really hoping to inspire a new generation of food entrepreneurs. Learning at our mother’s kitchen tables gave us our passion for good food and we’re grateful for that every day. We hope to see that passion grow in these junior entrepreneurs. Pea soup may seem simple but with the creativity and ingenuity that we know Ireland’s young people have we can’t wait to see what they come up with.”
Through this initiative growing kits will be delivered to 7,500 students across the country effective as from today. The winning students will be awarded a prize pot of €5,000 which includes a €3,000 food garden for their school as well as two iPads for the winning team of two students.
