Local Authority Partners

Do you want to make healthy and sustainable food the easy choice in your local authority area? 

Food for Life has been working with local authorities across the country for over 10 years, supporting schools, nurseries, caterers and communities to embed a good food culture within their settings and beyond.

Through bespoke support, training, and action frameworks we work in partnership to inspire, sustain and celebrate changes that improve diets, food environments and food systems.

By commissioning Food for Life to work in your area, our team of experts and local programme managers will make healthy and sustainable meals available to every child and create the culture to help children to enjoy by working with settings, caterers, producers and the wider community to embed a whole setting approach.

Our experience and flexibility means that we can develop a bespoke approach to suit your goals, whether that’s focusing on areas of deprivation or reducing sugar intake across the community.

We have a proven track record of engaging settings and improving health and wellbeing where we’re working, including:

Other benefits include meeting Ofsted requirements, supporting the plan for Public Procurement and joining an existing network of schools, early years settings, hospitals and caterers on the good food movement.

We’ve been working with Leicestershire County Council to change food culture in schools and the wider community since 2013. Find out more in this video.
