Combe Pafford School Achieve Silver Food For Life Award!

COMBE PAFFORD SCHOOL AWARDED FOR THEIR HEALTHY FOOD ACHIVEMENTS 
Combe Pafford School has been awarded the Food for Life Silver award for its healthy and climate-friendly food culture.

The school is working with Food for Life to transform the school’s food culture and that of its local community, by connecting the children with climate-friendly and healthy food.

In its quest to achieve the Food for Life Silver award, Combe Pafford serves school meals on plates, not flight trays, has a range of free range, local and organic items on the menu. Pupils get to cook and eat the produce they have grown in school. Parents and the wider community get involved too through food themed events such as the annual Combe Pafford School Food Festival.

Combe Pafford is now working towards the Food for Life Gold Award – the ultimate award that recognises schools, which use practical learning experiences to reconnect young people to the food they eat, following the journey from field to plate.

Rhiannon Alcock, School Nutrition Lead, explains “We are thrilled to have been awarded the Silver Food For Life Award. By joining the Food For Life scheme, we have been able to support our pupils, and parents and carers in understanding the benefits of a balanced and healthy diet, as well as enabling our pupils to have access to a high quality of food within school. Our pupils have been involved in suggesting and implementing changes to the dining hall and the menu, and have the opportunity to learn important life skills linked to growing and harvesting produce, and cooking.”
