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.

2020 has been a challenging year for us all. Schools are open and having to make localised arrangements for all kinds of services. Some schools are not yet serving hot food whilst others are serving meals in a ‘new normal’ way. LACA’s is supporting school caterers across England and Wales to help encourage pupils to enjoy hot school meals to fuel healthy minds and to support local British Food.

For NSMW 2020, LACA have created a number of simple to run theme events – all enabling school caterers the opportunity to get involved in the one/s they feel work best for the messages they wish to communicate.

A week full of fun
