Welcome to Food for Life
Our programme is about making good food the easy choice for everyone – making healthy, tasty and sustainable meals the norm for all to enjoy, reconnecting people with where their food comes from, teaching them how it’s grown and cooked, and championing the importance of well-sourced ingredients.
An enhanced version of our evidence-based programme is available for commissioning 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.
