Schools across England are using food as a way to improve their whole school experience - making lunchtimes a positive feature of the day and enriching classroom learning with farm visits and practical cooking and growing.
Haselor Primary School, Warwickshire
It was fabulous to receive a phone call on Friday 6th December informing us that we were one of the best blogger winners for National Roast Dinner Day. We are looking forward to receiving our vegetable trug in the new year and starting to grow veg that can be used in our school lunches. Our Reception teacher was really excited as she has planned to look at growing things in the Spring term. Our Roast Dinner Day was a real success and we are planning to invite the community in again as everyone really enjoyed the whole experience.
Thank you Food for Life for our great prize - we can't wait to start growing things.

St Hugh's Catholic Primary, Lincolnshire
We now have a cookery club running once a week, and the hope is that they will be using the food grown by the gardening club to use in recipes in the spring.
The children are busy making pictures of the food to put on the menu board so the children who can't read yet can see what they will be eating.
Our uptake of meals has gone up and one of the reasons for this is that children from each year group are able to sit with friends who are having pack ups. This has encouraged those on pack ups to try the meals, even if it is once a week.
Nettleham Infant School, Lincolnshire
Our Reception children had a great time at Doddington Hall. As part of their project "Healthy Bodies" they visited the Hall Kitchen Garden and the Farm Shop. They looked at how the vegetables grow and then bought some in the Farm Shop to bring back to school. The next day they made vegetable soup and fresh bread rolls.
The Food for Life Partnership is a network of schools and communities across England committed to transforming food culture. Together we are revolutionising school meals, reconnecting children and young people with where their food comes from, and inspiring families to grow and cook food.
