Victoria Howe – the woman behind changing school meals in Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire

The Farm Kitchen delivers over 5,000 delicious and nutritious meals to school children every day

Victoria Howe is the woman behind The Farm Kitchen, the catering company that provides delicious, nutritious meals for school children in the Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire areas using good quality, local ingredients.

Based in the heart of Lincolnshire, The Farm Kitchen hand prepares tasty, hearty dishes each day and delivers them into schools to be served, making healthy food convenient and accessible. Using locally sourced ingredients, the highly skilled team prepares these daily, with all menus fully compliant with the School Food Standards and all menus accredited by Lincolnshire Food in Schools Team.

With an extensive background in food, Vicky began her journey by first studying Agricultural Economics at Reading University and then trained at The Manor School of Fine Cuisine, a Cordon Bleu School. She then began her career in the Buying Team at luxury retailer, Waitrose. 

Growing up on a farm in Lincolnshire herself, and her husband being in the farming industry as well, Vicky wants to impart her knowledge on healthy, British-grown food onto school children to equip them with making healthy and sustainable choices.

With a passion to do something that made a difference and a drive to start her own business, using her wealth of knowledge she founded The Farm Kitchen to provide local school children with healthy meals to support their learning and general wellbeing.

Now this passion is even more crucial.  With health and wellbeing high on everyone’s agenda it is essential that school children are given the opportunity to eat healthy school meals and given the opportunity to do so. 

Victoria Howe, founder of The Farm Kitchen, comments: “Through the pandemic, children’s eating habits have deteriorated, so it’s more important than ever to be educating our children on how to eat healthily.

“At The Farm Kitchen, we’re passionate about feeding our children delicious food, every day, that will encourage them to go onto make their own healthy food choices. We really believe that good food really can change everything for a child, from the fundamentals of good nutrition and fuel to the enhanced health and social benefits.

“We want to inspire our children to have the same passion for food that we do, from a young age.”

Through the delivery of fresh meals and food education, The Farm Kitchen is on a mission to set children on the right path to make the best food choices for sustainable, healthier futures by creating proper, hearty home-cooked meals using British ingredients.

To aid this mission, it works with schools to provide activities where the children can learn more about fresh ingredients, new recipes, and are encouraged to try new tastes and flavours. Since starting these Food Activity Days, The Farm Kitchen has worked with over 5,000 children.

Each year, they also host Farming Activity Days at its main Ewerby Thorpe site, where the brand’s farm is based, to have school open days. The children can take part in a range of activities to ultimately gain a better understanding of where their meals come from. They help to plant seeds, make their own bread, visit the tractors, and have tours of the kitchen where their meals are produced.

Ahead of each term, parents can fill out an order form for their children. The Farm Kitchen now delivers over 5,000 meals to school children every day, where the school supervisors will then hand them out.
