Welcome to the Food for Life Partnership
Our programme is all about transforming food culture – making healthy, tasty and nutritious meals the norm for all to enjoy, reconnecting people with where food comes from, teaching them how it’s grown and cooked and understanding the importance of well-sourced ingredients.
Through our award scheme we work with thousands of schools, helping them build knowledge and skills through a whole school approach as well as involving pupils, teachers, caterers, parents and the wider community to create a powerful voice for long-term change.
Big Lottery Fund support means that it is free of charge for any school in England to join us and access a wealth of resources as well as advice and support. 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.
An enhanced 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 here.
Independent evaluation of the schools programme demonstrates its positive impact on health and education as well as how benefits extend beyond the school gate. We are now using this success as a basis to expand the FFLP approach into other areas, piloting programmes in nurseries, hospitals, universities, care homes and workplaces.
We’re a strong and successful partnership of five charities, led by the Soil Association. Find out more about who we are here.
