To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what recent steps his Department has taken to reduce food waste in schools.
8 July 2019
This government is committed to tackling waste. The Waste Strategy, published in December 2018, sets out a new approach to address food waste from farm to fork which includes tackling food waste in schools.
Schools are responsible for their day-to-day running including their school meals service. We expect schools to work closely with their caterer(s) to make sure that all pupils can choose a healthy and balanced meal, with as little waste as possible.
