This morning I took in the headlines from the new School Food Plan both as ‘Head of Policy for the Soil Association-led Food for Life Partnership’ and as a Mum who knows how hard it is to get my children to eat well. Soon I was surrounded by other Mums with school-age children, some saying how great their school meals were, some saying they wished their child’s school was like the ones on the news with their food growing gardens, but all saying they didn’t like the sound of banning packed lunches.

At the Education Catering Service in Plymouth, we provide our high quality, locally sourced, fresh and seasonal school food to the majority of primary and special schools across Plymouth, as well as individual contracts with newly converted primary and secondary academies. In 2005, when I came into post, the team immediately started work on reviewing all our school kitchens: were they fit for purpose? And - even more importantly - was the food we were sourcing and putting on our menus fit for purpose?

It’s not always about winning of course, but the fact the Food for Life Partnership (FFLP) has today won the Derek Cooper Award at the 2011 BBC Food & Farming Awards feels very well deserved.

So that was my third Soil Association conference, and I enjoyed it thoroughly – possibly my favourite of the three I’ve attended. Overall there it felt like there was more of a focus on exploring specific viable solutions to the problems we face, as opposed to just enumerating what all the problems are.
