Happy International School Meals Day!

14 March 2019

Today we are raising awareness of the importance of school meal programmes worldwide and the positive impact they have on fostering healthy eating habits both at home and at school.

The theme for this year's International School Meals Day is ‘Who makes my meal’, encouraging young people to think about their favourite food; where it comes from and who provides it.

To help us celebrate ISMD, Salt Yard Group, a collection of three Spanish/Italian style restaurants across London, are kindly donating £1 to School Food Matters from every table booked today. Their generous support will help us to continue to improve school meals and deliver food education projects across the country.

Schools can find useful resources and links here and join in the celebrations on social media using #ISMD2019.
