Soil Association Food for Life 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.

A Food for Life Schools Award in an independent endorsement for schools that provide healthy school meals, great lunchtimes and food education that has a positive impact on both pupils and the wider community.

The awards packages are designed to support schools through any changes they may need to achieve this. They are based on a flexible framework so every school can approach their award in the way that works best for them.

These are available either to schools directly, or via a local authority commissioned programme where they are further enhanced by training and local 'on the ground' support.

Achieving a Food for Life Award is a great way to show that your school meets Ofsted inspection requirements to support pupils to ‘make informed choices about healthy eating’ as well as meeting Department for Education School Food Standards. 

Fish and Kids can help schools achieve a Food for Life Schools Award. The Fish and Kids education resources such as assemblies can be used to meet criteria in the Food Education award section.
