Background to School Food Matters
School Food Matters (SFM) exists to teach children about food and to improve children’s access to healthy, sustainable food during their time at school. We provide fully funded food education programmes to schools. Our experience delivering these programmes informs and strengthens our campaigns, bringing the voices of children, parents and teachers to government policy.

Healthy Zones programme
Healthy Zones supports primary, secondary and special schools to create a food environment that puts young people’s health centre stage. We are working with schools to develop food policies and to improve the food served in their breakfast and after school clubs. The programme uses a whole school approach through hands-on engagement with students, staff, kitchen teams, governors and parents.

Job Purpose
• To promote, develop and deliver the Healthy Zones programme across schools in Southwark and Lambeth
• Support with the expansion of the Healthy Zones programme across other regions in England
