Food for Thought has continued for over 12 years. The experiences and learning for pupils, teachers and the wider school communities have been many and varied! But friendship, openness and great hospitality have been experienced by all.

To try to evaluate some of the impact of the FFT programme, we carried out an evaluation in the UK and in Uganda in 2005 and then again in 2010. In Uganda, we engaged 2 lecturers from Gulu University to carry out the research. There was a time delay but finally a summary of the report is now available.

In June 2013, Keira Dymond, an MSc student from Exeter University, carried out research for her dissertation in the FFT schools. She was considering the FFT approach as a form of agricultural extension - through children and young people.

All reports concluded that the programme is effective and good value for money.
