Taking part in social action projects builds skills for work and life, makes you feel better, happier and more confident. These young people prove it...

After three years our current volunteer Treasurer is stepping down, so we are recruiting for a replacement.

This is an opportunity for someone who lives or works in Brighton & Hove to join the Food Partnership Board of Directors

We feel really proud of the bold decision taken by Brighton & Hove City Council to introduce minimum buying standards for all their catering contracts because it will bring about improvements to the food served to thousands across the city every day.

Thank you to all who have been involved! 

As a current nutrition student from Bournemouth University I was excited to venture out of the classroom and see nutrition being practiced in the wider community.

 

In September 2013 the Deputy Prime-Minister announced that all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 would be entitled to a Free School Meal. This bit of national policy is based on pilot studies that suggested that a free meal for all helped to narrow the divide in the achievement gap between rich and poor pupils and that children with a regular healthy meal were more likely to be able to concentrate, get better academic results and were less likely to be obese. It's a public health approach, covering everyone for a universal long-term benefit and for families in the city this represents a saving per child per school year of £399 (or £2.10 per day).
