Food for Life is a nationally recognised scheme set up by the Soil Association to improve standards in the food we eat. Edinburgh schools were awarded the bronze award in 2011 and have been reaccredited each year. This means all our school lunches

  • are nutritious
  • are seasonal
  • have low food miles
  • use local suppliers
  • do not contain unnecessary additives.
