We help local authorities across Scotland to get fresh, local, sustainable food onto school dinner plates, by supporting them to achieve the Food for Life Served Here award for their school meals service.
A Food for Life Served Here award in a school is a nationally recognised mark of quality.
If you see a Food for Life Served Here logo you know that the majority of the food on the menu will be freshly prepared, it will always be free from undesirable trans fats, sweeteners, and additives, with free-range eggs and meat that can be traced back to the farm, and use ingredients from sustainable and ethical sources.
Serve up healthier school meals with more fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, and wholegrains on the menu.
Support a thriving local economy by getting more Scottish food on the table.
Protect the environment for the future by reducing food miles.
Empower school catering staff with more meals cooked from scratch.
We work with local authorities across Scotland to get good food onto school plates. Find out if your local authority holds the Food for Life Served Here award for its school meals here.
We work with local food producers and suppliers to put more Scottish food on the table in primary schools across the country. Working with our partners, we've taken on projects of all sizes, from delivering a huge boost in spend on Scottish meat for West Lothian Council to helping pioneer local vegetable supply on the Isle of Arran with North Ayrshire Council.
