National School Meals Week (NSMW) is the one week of the year when the school meals industry celebrates all that is GREAT about school food.

The aims for this year include:

You can replicate the menu that we will be serving in the House of Commons and serve it to the pupils in your school, as we will be making it available on our website in advance of the date of the event. It also has an educational benefit to the lunch as the children can find out how Parliament works, what is the history of our political system etc. and we can make resources available that will help put the facts across.

In summary there has never been a better time to celebrate all that is great about the industry. 

What else does this website contain?

We have numerous resources, advice and much more to support you
