Policy Officer, School Food Matters
School Food Review Working Group Coalition

Too many children are missing out on good quality, nutritious school food. Now is the time for reform, to realise the full potential of the school food system.

The School Food Review Working Group is a coalition that includes representatives of catering staff, school leaders, local authorities, experts, campaigners, and, of course, school children. The group has identified five ‘pillars’ of the school food system: areas which need reform and solutions to do so.

This session will include an overview of the pillars and work so far, as well as next steps for the group.
