Food for Life Scotland

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.
