The Really Good School Dinner
The call is out to all schools inviting them to help children both here and in some of the world's poorest countries.
This unique campaign, led by the School Food Trust in partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), has re-launched for January 2010 and is open now for registration.
- encourages more pupils to try school food, which is now governed by nutritional standards, so guarantees them a healthy meal
- raises money for the WFP to give children in the world's poorest countries a school meal and, often by consequence, an education.
Pupils take part by donating just 10p extra for each school lunch they have during the campaign week. That is enough to buy a whole meal for a child in the developing world, through the WFP's School Feeding Scheme.
You can take part by signing up online.
