The Food for Life Schools Award

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.

Our programme supports your school to:

  • Improve health, wellbeing and motivation of pupils and staff
  • Encourage pupils to take part in enrichment activities
  • Enable children to feel empowered to make their own choices to improve wellbeing
  • Connect with parents and your local community

Don’t just take our word for it, read the Independent evaluation of our unique approach that shows the positive contribution to pupil health and wellbeing, with many schools reporting a clear impact on their Ofsted report.

Get in touch and find out more about registering your school. 

Our great value awards packages are designed to support you through any changes you may need to achieve this. They are based on a flexible framework so every school can approach their award in the way that works best for them. 

These are available either to schools directly, or via a local authority commissioned programme where they are further enhanced by training and local 'on the ground' support.
