School Food and Feeding the Mind: Opportunity, Encouragement and Education

Edinburgh | Tue 12 September 2017 | 10.00 – 15.00

As the holidays finish and the new school term begins, the subject of school
food is very much back on the menu.

Holyrood’s School Food and Feeding the Mind event will provide a timely
platform for debate and discussion around the importance and priorities of
school food provision and the wider impact of food education.

Join us on the 12th September at this key briefing as we explore priorities
and potential for food education and provision in schools and beyond, helping
young people navigate their own way toward longer, healthier lives.
