What you need

  1. A selection of 10 vegetables and/or fruits
  2. A prepared quiz of 20 questions with the above vegetables and/or fruits as the answers (or you can use our quiz)


Since pagan times in Britain, thanks have been given for abundant harvests. We celebrate food grown on the land throughout September and enjoy Harvest Festivals around the last Sunday of the month. 

In this fun food-themed quiz, we ask questions and everyone answers by picking up the correct vegetable from the table. It’s great for people who might struggle to find the names of the vegetables but will know them by sight and/or feel.

Top tip

If you can’t get your hands on many vegetables or fruit, you could use the images from any food magazine.  Supermarkets often have free magazines available you could use.
