FixOurFood in Schools Network
FixOurFood in Schools is part of the FixOurFood research project, working to transform the Yorkshire food system to provide healthy, sustainable and tasty food for children with less harm to our planet. We are working with school staff, children, farmers, caterers, universities and policy makers and building a network of Yorkshire primary schools so that we can understand the best way to enable this change. This cohort will enable the team to engage and work with schools, to collect data over many years (including information routinely collected by schools and researcher collected information); hold workshops and interact directly with a wide range of children; and invite schools/children to be involved in opportunities to develop and test food-based interventions. It will be the first of its kind in the UK and (because it has potential to develop over many years) will be a legacy project for the project and the University of York. We are still looking for schools to take part.
If you are a primary school based in Yorkshire, please join us!

Pushing for change and helping schools
We are gathering data from all Yorkshire primary schools to take a reliable snapshot of whole school approaches to food. We will use this to push for help and change for schools amongst policy makers.
