Innovation For All workshop tackled “The Challenge of Universal Free School Meals in Wales”

On 23 November 2022, Professor Kevin Morgan facilitated an Innovation for All seminar which addressed the various dimensions of the Universal Free School Meals 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.
