Food On My Plate
The Clay Foundation is campaigning for the removal of the airline-style plastic compartment trays, currently used in schools across the UK for the serving of school meals, in favour of proper ceramic plates. Over 150 ceramic plates have been hand made by school children, reinforcing healthy eating messages and evoking a sense of civic pride. Harpfields Primary Academy, Thistley Hough Academy, Oakhill Primary School, Hillside Primary and Watermill Special School have so far taken place.
"It’s certainly has enticed them to make healthy eating choices whilst at school.' Teacher, Oakhill Primary School
The Clay Foundation is linking in with the Food for Life Partnership with the Soil Association. The Food for Life Partnership is a network of schools across England committed to transforming food culture. Together they are revolutionising school meals, reconnecting young people with farms and inspiring families to cook and grow food.
