Innovation For All Workshop: The Challenge of Free School Meals in Wales

23 November 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

One of the most ambitious policies that emerged from the Cooperation Agreement between the Welsh Labour Government and Plaid Cymru was the commitment to deliver Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) to all primary school children in Wales. Although this is a highly laudable new policy commitment, it is also a very challenging policy goal when local authorities are already struggling to maintain existing services amidst the twin pressures of tight budgets and the rapidly escalating costs of food and fuel.

This Innovation for All seminar, facilitated by Prof Kevin Morgan, will address the various dimensions of the UFSM challenge, focusing in particular on the three most common problems – the infrastructure (kitchens and dining rooms) to accommodate the increased numbers of children; the staffing issue of extra hands or additional hours for existing catering staff; and the procurement of nutritious food.

Please join us in person in room 6.35, Sbarc | Spark, Maindy Rd, Cardiff to hear the very latest from the people in local and national government who are engaged in meeting the UFSM challenge.
