The Food for Life Partnership is a network of schools and communities across England committed to transforming food culture.   The project was set up with Big Lottery funding in 2009.   Led by the Soil Association, the Food for Life Partnership brings together the practical expertise of several organisations including the Focus on Food Campaign, Garden Organic and the Health Education Trust.

 

There are several schools taking part in the Shropshire area and they have been active in growing, cooking and composting, helping to improve their school dinners and stimulate healthy eating and local produce in the process.  Shropshire Master Composters have supported schools in their areas by providing free school visits and inputting their expertise to help establish gardens on the sites.   Shropshire Council with support from Veolia have also assisted by providing free composting bins for schools to help them reduce waste and create their own soil improver.

 

All schools are encouraged to participate and can access free resources like seeds and plants to grow their own produce as well as educational materials.  Visit their website for more details www.foodforlife.org.uk
