Food for Life
The Food for Life School Award supports schools to take a whole school approach that sees them grow their own food; organise trips to farms; provide cooking and growing clubs for pupils and their families; serve freshly prepared, well-sourced meals and provide an attractive dining environment.
A Food for Life Schools Award is a great way to demonstrate that your school is doing fantastic work to provide healthy school meals, great lunchtimes and food education that has a positive impact on both pupils and the wider community.

Food for Life Events
The Food for Life Team continues to offer free, curriculum-linked training to support schools in transforming food culture. Aimed at teaching and support staff, these popular sessions support curriculum cooking, gardening & making farm links. They are designed to inform long term planning and underpin Ofsted's new Common Inspection Framework (published June 2015) in relation to schools supporting pupils to gain "knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy", including healthy eating.
