The Tilda Together Street Food Lockdown Challenge

Target audience - Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old), Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old)

Tilda, working together with Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Scotland, is delighted to launch the Tilda Lockdown Street Food Challenge 2021. 

Designed to develop employability skills and an understanding of careers in food and drink that supports healthy eating and social responsibility, the Tilda Together Street Food Challenge is open to all S1 – 3 and S4 – S6 pupils across Scotland.

Two sets of prizes will be awarded one in the S1 – S3 category and one in the S4 -S6 category.

We had hoped that the challenge could be delivered in schools but given the new lockdown restrictions we have decided to amend the criteria to enable teachers to use this challenge to support delivering the curriculum via online learning and with parental / family support.

We are challenging pupils to design a new rice based street food dish that they would like to eat, during lockdown or anytime.
