Happy New Year! At SFM we're looking forward to a busy new year but we thought it was worth looking back at one important event from 2011. The team at Feeding the 5000 has produced a great film which sums up our day at Trafalgar Square. Enjoy it by clicking here then look in your fridge for any Christmas leftovers and remember Feed Bellies not Bins!

Following Jamie Oliver's appearance on BBC Breakfast and the media coverage that followed, SFM and fellow food campaigners met last week at JO HQ to discuss the way forward; how do we persuade the government to rethink its decision to make free schools and academies exempt from school food standards? We believe the place from which to lead the charge is the Jamie Oliver website, and you can show your support by reading his letter and going to the new Save our School Food Facebook page.

SFM was lucky enough to enjoy roast turkey and seasonal veg at Robin Hood Primary in Kingston. This was our first taste of the new meal offer from Cygnet which now meets the Food for Life Catering Mark Bronze standard. Robin Hood is also enjoying the benefits of a brand new kitchen which means that all school meals are cooked fresh every day on site. And the children are loving the new food with over half the school opting for hot meals. One year 6 boy summed it up "It looks nicer, it tastes nicer and it's healthy!"
