I started the day, yesterday, at the launch of the 'Free School Meals Toolkit' at South Leeds Stadium...

This is the latest piece of the Leeds School Meals Strategy complementing the work that Rosie Molinari and her colleagues are doing to drive improvements in this key area. We have already launched the 'Leeds School Meals Strategy', the 'Leeds Packed Lunch Policy Guidelines' and now we are working to increase the uptake of free school meals.

We have around 17500 children eligible for free school meals and around a quarter of these fail to take up their entitlement. As always this toolkit is another brilliant piece of work based on strong research evidence and customer engagement and involvement working with colleagues from Leeds Metropolitan University.
