Food for Life


The Food for Life programme is about making good food the easy choice for everyone - making healthy, tasty and sustainable meals the norm for all to enjoy; reconnecting people with where their food comes from; teaching them how it's grown and cooked; and championing the importance of well-sourced ingredients.

The Food for Life programme brings schools, nurseries, hospitals and care homes, and their surrounding communities together around the core ethos of healthy, tasty and sustainable food. The programme is about more than just food on the plate; it considers where food comes from and how it’s grown, cooked and experienced. Colleagues from the Food for Life programme provide practical advice and support to our school, and reward and celebrate our success.

The Food for Life School Award supports schools to take a whole school approach that sees them grow their own food; organise trips to farms; source food from local producers; set up school farmers’ markets; hold community food events; provide cooking and growing clubs for pupils and their families; serve freshly prepared, well-sourced meals and provide an attractive dining environment so lunchtimes are a positive feature of the school day. The programme is underpinned by an evidence-based, whole setting approach.

At Lighthorne Heath Primary School, we were delighted to receive the Food for Life Bronze Award in July 2017. Staff are now working with the whole school community towards achieving the Silver Award.
