Three cheers for schools and their caterers!
We've been hearing such inspiring stories from our schools and catering teams that we thought we should write to Secretary of State for Education, Gavin Williamson.
DfE is doing a brilliant job at mobilising support to keep children well fed during the school closures. We want our caterers front and centre of this effort and would promote catering teams above supermarket vouchers if a catering service is possible. You can read our letter below.

On International School Meals Day it’s worth celebrating the fantastic job done by school cooks and caterers across the world to make sure children at school are happy healthy and ready to learn.
DfE has updated guidance for schools on free school meals during school closures. First port of call is always your school caterer. If your caterer is unable to support, the voucher scheme is explained and DfE has settled on £15 per child per week.
