Louise Wilson represents the Food for Life Partnership – a network of schools and communities across England committed to transforming food culture.
The network aims to reach out through schools to give communities access to seasonal, local and organic food, and to the skills they need to cook and grow fresh food. The Food for Life Partnership uses food as a way to improve the whole school experience – making lunchtimes a positive feature of the day and enriching classroom learning with farm visits and practical cooking and growing. Schools enrolled on the programme are growing their own food; organising trips to farms; sourcing food from local bakers, butchers and farmers; setting up school farmers’ markets; holding community food events; providing cooking and growing clubs for pupils and their families; and serving freshly prepared, locally sourced meals that follow a rigorous Food for Life Catering Mark.’
