This series of podcasts, in association with ASSIST FM and kindly supported by Green Gourmet and Quorn Foods, builds on the publication of the Footprint Intelligence report Sustainable Success in the New Normal: Conquering Challenges in Education Catering in a Covid-19 World. The objective with this series of podcasts is to maintain the sustainability momentum created in public sector catering, specifically in educational catering.
In this first episode, we discuss how the current climate creates the opportunities to push for new and more effective policies, for caterers, suppliers, children and young people, to ensure the viability of school catering, integrate sustainable practices and support the levelling up agenda.
- The need to highlight the key role catering plays in the education sector
- How Brexit can help us reshape policy and funding structures
- The important role of social value and partnerships and how these can be harnessed to demonstrate value
- The importance of collaboration across public sector, business, government and the third sector
- How to support school food standards and the levelling up agenda
- The need to build eco-systems and assign ownership for current and future resilience
