Save our school dinners, says Soil Association

Soil Association.jpgThe Soil Association has partnered with the Children's Food Campaign and other school food and children's health campaigners to continue the fight to save school dinners.

Following the conclusion of the School Meals Matter petition, the Save Our School Dinners campaign needs your support as there has still been no official commitment to our nation's school food service.

In fact, the Government's decision earlier this year to scrap the proposed extension to free school meals, health secretary Andrew Lansley's criticism of Jamie Oliver's approach to school dinners, and the leaked document last week that listed the School Food Trust as one of the taxpayer-funded bodies facing the chop demonstrate the importance of supporting this campaign.

So sign the petition now - it asks the government to protect the new healthy lunches and promote good food education at school.

Time is running out though, as the petition will be handed in ahead of the Spending Review on 20 October but it only takes a minute to do.

If when you've signed you want to go a step further, the Soil Association is calling on you to write to your local MP. Full details on how to do so are available here.
