Food for Life Scotland - Education
The Food for Life Scotland team is currently working on an exciting new initiative which will build on the work they are already doing in Scottish schools through the Food for Life Catering Mark Award. The new Food for Life Schools’ Framework will help to further transform food culture in Scottish schools by enabling schools to embed and celebrate a ‘whole-school’ approach to food.
Existing food education initiatives

Cairngorms Food for Life Plan
The Cairngorms Food for Life Development Plan was Scotland’s first regional food plan, launched in September 2010 and currently being delivered with funding through Cairngorms LEADER & Cairngorms National Park Authority. This initiative will shortly be coming to a close, and a full evaluation report of its successes and case study information will be made available in due course.
