School food leadership forum agenda and minutes 

These forums were an opportunity for school leaders to come together and share concerns, ideas and successes around nutrition, school meals and the impact of the pandemic on children’s eating habits.

Key information, local and national DfE updates on free school meals and food in school was also shared at this event. We discussed food poverty and strategies for ensuring hunger is removed as a barrier to learning.

Next steps for school meals were considered, including the potential transition from classroom lunches served in grab-bags back to meals on plates in dining rooms.
