Sheffield On A Plate

We are a partnership project involving the 3 main further and higher education institutions of Sheffield, the local community food network, Grow Sheffield, and Fareshare Yorkshire.

We aim to raise sustainability awareness amongst students and staff in higher education, further education and the communities of Sheffield through a focus on food.

College grow site- getting started

As part of our project, Sheffield College staff and students are working together to create a grow site in the centre of the city at their City College campus.

Our Week in the Winter Gardens

So it’s Community Week in the Winter Gardens and the Sheffield on a Plate team are going to be busy running some fanatstic stalls for you all to come down and enjoy.

Six dishes. Two Universities. One sustainable Masterchef

Students from the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam spent six weeks in a sustainable cookery course, taught by catering students at Sheffield College.

Preparing seasonal dishes with local ingredients, the two universities went head to head, cooking a six course meal for fifty guests. Their prize? A day’s experience in a Michelin starred kitchen.

It’s time to find out which university was crowned the winner of Sheffield on a Plate’s sustainable Masterchef.

Christmas Food Drive 2013- The Impact

The Sheffield on a Plate Christmas Food Drive 2013 had a big positive impact on the local community.

Abundance: students harvest wasted fruit from trees

After a summer of taking care of the Student Eats allotment, I couldn’t help but notice how much fruit was growing completely effortlessly all around. It struck me how completely mad it would be… (not) making use of the food that is already growing by itself in far greater quantities than we could ever manage on our small plot of land.

The Great Residences Bake Off
