LACA has announced the first planned activities for National School Meals Week 2017 (NSMW), which will take place from November 13th – 17th.

New for this year is the NSMW Daily Marathon – Powered by School Food. Karen Robinson, a member of LACA’s NSMW team, will be running a marathon through LACA’s many regions supported by as many LACA members, school pupils and supporters as possible.

The return of #cookeditmyselfie, which was introduced last year, will see LACA ask caterers to share pictures and videos of the best examples of school meals with a prize of £500’s worth of marketing resources or equipment up for grabs.

The Host a School Chef programme is also back for a fourth time, which aims to give school chefs the opportunity to spend a day working in a fine dining establishment.

The Soil Association’s Food for Life will also be showing its support with National Roast Dinner Day in the middle of the week’s activities.

The NSMW website will also feature free to download resources with new themes for theme days.
