GENERAL ELECTION 2019

The 2019 General Election is on! Read about our priorities, and compare party policies here.

The 2019 General Election provides an opportunity for every party to show its commitment to the health and wellbeing of children at school by ensuring they have access to healthy, sustainable school meals. If this commitment is underpinned by comprehensive food education, we can support children and young people to become mindful, healthy adults.

School Food Matters believes the following five areas should be the focus for any future reform in school meals:

  • School Food Standards
  • Food Education
  • Free School Meals
  • Better Procurement
  • Promoting Water
