Fran Box is the Project Manager for TastEd. Alongside this she runs catering business Plant Life Kitchen – winner of the Dartmouth Food Festival start up award. Fran has spent her career supporting and delivering projects in the not-for-profit and education sector, she is passionate about the need for greater equality and believes food, as something that unifies us, is a key factor in this.
Having had the opportunity to work delivering food growing projects Fran has seen children’s disconnect between food and where it comes from and their lack of familiarity and unwillingness to try certain fruit and vegetables. Fran is bringing this passion and experience to TastEd in the belief that a a charity it can solve part of this problem.
Her favourite way to eat a carrot is cooked, marinated and then in a bagel with cream cheeze.
