Background to School Food Matters
School Food Matters exists to teach children about food and to improve children’s access to healthy, sustainable food during their time at school. We provide fully funded food education programmes to schools. Our experience delivering these programmes informs and strengthens our campaigns, bringing the voices of children, parents and teachers to government policy.
School Food Matters relies on the work of volunteers. The contribution of volunteers is always valuable to our small charity. Opportunities to help with food education projects can involve helping our gardeners, chefs and project officers in schools, and supporting our team at market days and events. These opportunities are a great way to explore our work and get hands-on experience of running sessions with children in schools.
We run a wide range of food education workshops: cooking sessions, food growing sessions, bee-friendly planting sessions, visits to farms and apiaries and many others. Most of our workshops are one-off sessions in schools around London, taking place during the school day across many London boroughs.
We will pay your expenses up to a maximum of £11 for travel and £5 for food. Your expenses will be reimbursed when you complete an expenses form and produce receipts.
