Take part in the Food for Life Partnership Roast Dinner Day

18 September 2010 – The Food for Life Partnership is inviting every school in England to take part in a Roast Dinner Day on Wednesday 29 September, an event which could be a world record breaker.

The aim of the Roast Dinner Day is to celebrate the launch of the Food for Life Partnership Cooks’ Network, a network of 16 pioneering school cooks, and the fantastic work schools across England are doing to transform their food culture. There’s also a chance that the event will achieve a new world record for the ‘most schools to serve the same school dinner on the same day’,

Get involved

To take part in the event, all schools have to do is serve a locally-sourced/organic roast dinner and invite parents and the local community into the school to enjoy the meal. Partcipating schools might like to have a go at serving a Bronze standard meal, which means that it should be seasonal and 75% freshly prepared. The dinner may even include produce from the school’s own garden.

If you would like to take part in this record breaking attempt, email Natasha Moseley, our events officer, at fflp@foodforlife.org.uk. Alternatively, you can call her on 0117 987 4582.

The Food for Life Partnership is all about improving school dinners, making them healthier, tastier and more sustainable. It’s also about teaching children where their food comes from, how to grow food and essential cooking skills. Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, the Partnership brings together the practical expertise and enthusiasm of four food-focused charities – the Soil Association, Focus on Food Campaign, Health Education Trust and Garden Organic.
