Bits and pieces

Free school meal for all?
The Childhood Poverty Action Group are currently (CPAG) are currently planning a pre election campaign on this. They have support from a number of large childrn's charities and unions and are working on campaign materials and a launch. If you are interested in helping with this let me know

School Meals Matter
Leaving aside the name which is horribly close to our good friends School Food Matters, this campaign is being run by the trade magazine Hotel and Caterer with the Local Authority Caterers Association(LACA)They are looking to persuade the government to continue supporting the school meals service with the grants budget. This is going to be a crucial issue in the coming months so please encourage your pals to sign up here

Ever thought of coco pops after school?
If you are outraged everytime you walk past one of those irritating posters exhorting the nations youth to increase their sugar consumption you may like our alterative posters! The Childrens Food Campaign have their own version here. If you click on the link you can compose your own slogan and see some others have already done.

And finally ...
The good news is that Poplar Primary School will finally be getting it's own new school kitchen after half term! It has been in the pipe line for a long time. It will be great to see it turned into a reality.
