School Food matters

School Food Matters is on a mission to ensure that every child enjoys fresh sustainable food at school and understands where their food comes from. We work with parents, children and schools to improve school meals and support food education through cooking, growing and visits to farms.


With selected partners, we devise, develop and deliver exciting food education programmes for school children. Our quest is to introduce children and their families to the joys of growing, cooking, eating and sharing delicious fresh food so that they learn to make healthier choices, value food more and waste it less. Our approach has always been to work in partnership to develop a programme that can grow and become a firm fixture on the school’s calendar. All our programmes will include hands-on cooking and food growing and will often include a visit to a working farm.
