Food for Life is part of the Soil Association and brings together a national school awards programme with our work in wider settings including early years, hospitals, care settings and workplaces. Now we have over 5,000 schools enrolled and we work with local authorities and commissioners up and down the country on exciting new ventures such as our Food for Life Early Years Award, through to our Hospital Leaders Circle package.
How did we get here? We started life in 2007 thanks to a grant from the BIG Lottery which enabled us to set up the Food for Life Partnership, led by the Soil Association with a coalition of four other national charities who are very much part of the fabric of Food for Life today. Our national partners are Focus on Food, Garden Organic, the Health Education Trust and, since 2013, the Royal Society for Public Health - all leaders in their field. Now that funding period has ended we look back proudly on what we achieved but more importantly we look forward to the future and the exciting opportunities ahead for Food for Life.
