Jamie has worked across public relations, journalism and communications for more than a decade in Kent. He now works as chief communications officer at East Kent Colleges Group.
Students and staff from across the group undertake regular social action and volunteering projects, with a number of schemes seeing learners ‘gleaning’ fruit and vegetables that might otherwise have gone to waste and donating them to local foodbanks.
Alongside this, the group’s six colleges also host their own foodbanks for students who may otherwise go hungry.
Jamie will be judging Food Producer of the Year.
