I am writing to you all to ask you to stand shoulder to shoulder with Jamie Oliver.
Refusing to insist that nutritional standards apply to ALL schools is a major threat to the school food improvements we have seen since 2005.
I urge you to write a joint letter to Gove calling on him to apply nutritional standards to ALL schools. If he refuses then start a mass campaign. You will get huge public support with medical organizations, health charities, teachers unions and parents lining up to support you.
Regardless of how tough things are for your organizations at the moment I believe the future of the school meal service depends on this one decision and a failure to stand up to Gove now will have dire consequences on the meals our children will be eating.
If you don’t win this then much of the excellent work you have done in the past will be for nothing.
