Mrs Walker was one of nearly 1,000 Waitrose Partners to promote healthy eating in schools to almost 15,000 pupils throughout the British Isles to mark the UK’s biggest day of volunteering, the Business in the Community (BITC) Give & Gain Day.
The initiative is part of the Waitrose Partner Volunteering Programme which will see 11,000 full working weeks donated to local causes across the UK and Channel Islands by 2017.
Allyson Walker, personnel manager at Waitrose Rohais, said “I really enjoy going into schools to talk to students about healthy eating and educating them about nutrition.”
“It was encouraging to see how much they knew about the food groups already and for children of their age it’s vital for their growth that they’re eating a variety of all the food types – as I tell students, they should be eating a rainbow of food.”
