Welcome to Food for Life
Our programme is all about transforming food culture – making healthy, tasty and sustainable meals the norm, reconnecting people with where their food comes from, teaching them how it’s grown and cooked, and championing the importance of well-sourced ingredients.
We work with thousands of schools, nurseries, hospitals and care homes, helping them build knowledge and skills through a ‘whole setting approach’. This engages pupils and parents, teachers and doctors, caterers and carers, and the wider community to create a powerful voice for long-term change.
Independent evaluation of our schools programme demonstrates its positive impact on health and education as well as how benefits extend beyond the school gate. If you are a school then begin your journey by enrolling online today. We are also supporting actions recommended by the School Food Plan through projects funded by the Department for Education - find out more here.
Based on our success in schools, and with support from the Big Lottery Fund, we have expanded the Food for Life approach to form new partnerships. Find out about our work in Early Years settings, in hospitals, and in universities, care homes and workplaces.
An enhanced programme is available for commissioning across settings to support health and wellbeing priorities in your area. We are already achieving clear results in local authorities throughout England. Find out more about our commissions here.
