A good school food culture supports children’s health and wellbeing

If you are a school contact us to:

  • Stay informed about helpful initiatives and national policy updates via our Newsletter and Latest News or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Kick-start, expand or find funding for food education ideas at your school by using the resources on our website or joining our Membership for Schools programme.
  • Get your school listed as one of those that would like to join our partnership activities with selected food retailers. Our members have priority on participating in our exciting growing/enterprise projects, subject to geography.
  • Invite us to help advise on better catering standards and procurement practices if you want to handle the school meal service yourselves. 
  • We can facilitate site visits and arrange for you to hear from the experts. We will identify schools that are providing an excellent school meal service and organise a day of site visits and fact-finding.
  • We can help you work with your local authority if you want to change your school meal service.
