About Us

Food for Life brings schools, nurseries, hospitals and care homes, and their surrounding communities together around the core ethos of healthy, tasty and sustainable food.

Our Early Years Award provides an independent endorsement for nurseries and children’s centres that serve good quality, nutritious food and support the babies and children in their care to develop good eating habits for life.

Our School Award supports schools to take a whole school approach that sees them grow their own food; organise trips to farms; provide cooking and growing clubs for pupils and their families; serve freshly prepared, well-sourced meals and provide an attractive dining environment.

Our Hospital Leaders team work in partnership with NHS Trusts to promote health and sustainability as well as improving the food experience of patients, staff and visitors.

Our Better Care team give older people in care settings, hospital and in their own homes more support to eat and enjoy good food, demonstrating the vital role that good food can play both nutritionally and in tackling isolation amongst older people

Each of these programmes are underpinned by an whole setting approach and are available for commissioning across settings to support local health and wellbeing priorities.
