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:

Download the invite letter template on the NSMW Resources New for 2019 section and invite your MP to lunch. There are similar invite letter templates to download, for inviting the media and local dignitaries such as the Mayor, ward councillors etc. all free to download in English and Welsh.

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