School Food Matters
800,000 children living in poverty in England are not eligible for free school meals.
Extend free school meals now.
It’s our birthday! We’re celebrating 15 years of teaching children about food and improving access to healthy and sustainable school meals.
Founded in 2007, School Food Matters was born out of a grassroots campaign that transformed school meals for 38 schools in the London Borough of Richmond.
School Food Matters is the charity that knows schools. We use our extensive knowledge, gained from working with children, parents and teachers, to advocate for better school meals and vital food education.
We will campaign so that no child misses out on nutritious food at school. We will deliver food education programmes to develop children’s understanding of food to help them lead healthy lives.
