Food for Thought
In February 2019, the RSE@ Inverness programme delivered a series of talks and workshops all about food. Held at Inverness Royal Academy, school pupils and members of the public learned about the importance of plant-based diets; found out how difficult it is to master gluten-free bread; spoke with local food producers; discussed their favourite pieces of literature; and discovered how one writer brings food to life through words.

Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne FRSE, founder of Genius Foods Ltd, reviewed the entries for our competition Rainbow on a Plate!, which tasked children to create a tasty, healthy dish that includes all the colours of the rainbow. Robyn, age 8 from Aberdeenshire, created a delicious elf pizza and was presented her prizes by Lucinda at Fascinating Futures in Inverness on 31 August.
