Why Get Involved

Being involved with the Food for Life Partnership brings a wide range of benefits.  Schools tell us that our programme of flexible support leads to positive results in a wide range of areas, including:

  • Improving attainment and Ofsted ratings
  • Supporting and enriching the curriculum
  • Involving pupils by helping them learn practical and relevant skills
  • Bringing the school and wider community closer together
  • Tackling disadvantage
  • Promoting understanding of environmental issues
  • Supporting local producers and suppliers
  • Gaining wider recognition for schools’ achievements.

Local Authority and Public Health teams who commission our programme report the following benefits:

  • A flexible, evidence-based programme that tackles both health inequalities and school improvement
  • Positive impact on emotional health and wellbeing and community cohesion
  • A life-course approach that fits closely with national policy
  • Supports increased viability of school meal service
  • Collaborative approach to working in partnership with local organisations
  • Positive feedback from local schools involved with the programme.

"We have commissioned FFLP because it offers an evidence-based, empowering programme of support which we can target in our efforts to tackle health inequalities across our diverse county. "Lucy O'Loughlin (Public Health Specialist, Devon County Council)

Commission Our Work

Our Impact

We know  from feedback that we’re having a real impact in schools – but to fully capture the bigger picture, we commissioned a number of independent studies, gathering results across a range of areas – all brilliantly summarised in our report ‘Good Food for All’.

The report highlights key areas of achievement around improving education and children’s health, tackling inequalities and improving local enterprise and sustainability.
