Since its inception in 2010, School Food Matters has been an active member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on School Food chaired by Sharon Hodgson MP.
We use our real-world experience of working in schools to strengthen our campaigns on children’s health, access to nutritious school meals and food education.
As part of the response to the Childhood Obesity Plan (chapters 1 and 2) the UK Government proposed a Healthy Schools Rating Scheme (HSRS) which would be used to evaluate how schools are supporting children to keep themselves healthy.
In 2012, SFM was proud to be invited to be part of the Expert Panel charged by the DfE to come up with the School Food Plan.
We have over 6000 loyal supporters on our database and from time to time we call on them to help us campaign on school food matters. Enjoy these numbers which prove that a small grassroots charity can have a great big impact.
