RSPH Health Promotion Award

In 2012 Food for Life were awarded a Health Promotion Award by The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) for promoting health in the community and our commitment to tackling health inequality.

The award recognises the development of key life skills and we are incredibly proud to have gained such a strong affirmation of the positive impact the Food for Life programme has had on children's health and community engagement.

Our award application was underpinned by the programme's independent evaluation, Good Food for All.

RSPH assessors also visited Batley Girls High School, a Bronze Award winning school in West Yorkshire, to see how the FFL framework has supported the school in practice to transform their food culture. Read the school's case study here.

The aim of the awards is to showcase the contribution of health promotion to public health in the UK with criteria based around the principles of the Ottawa Charter.

Speak to our team of Commissioning Managers to find out more about how we can support public health priorities in your area.

"Evidence points towards the FFL’s potential to contribute to helping ‘close the gap’ for disadvantaged children in terms of their health and academic attainment."Teeman et al (2011, p.52)
