About Us

Our mission is to teach children about food and to improve children’s access to healthy, sustainable food during their time at school.

We provide fully-funded food education programmes to schools. Our experience delivering these programmes informs and strengthens our campaigns, bringing the voices of children, parents and teachers to government policy.

School Food Matters is a registered charity number 1134094.

Our Story

School Food Matters was founded in 2007 by parent Stephanie Wood, inspired by environmentalist Zac Goldsmith, then the parliamentary candidate for Richmond Park.

Our Funding

In 2010 we made a commitment to move the charity from 100% grant dependency. Our two areas of work remain campaigning and food education but we have now moved to a more financially robust model with income coming from four sources.
