The School Food Trust was established as a charity in 2005. From
We expect the School Food Trust will take forward a number of activities for the Department, including continuing to support schools and local authorities to meet national nutritional standards for school lunches, and advising the Government on school food.
The level of future DFE support will be dependent upon decisions to be taken in the light of the spending review and upon the tasks we ask the School Food Trust to undertake. However, it will be free to sell its services to local authorities, schools, caterers and others on a commercial basis.
