THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO HELPED CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL MEALS DAY 2015!

WE HAD A GREAT DAY CELEBRATING CULTURE THROUGH FOOD

In 2015 we encouraged the children and young people of the world to connect with each other and share their food experiences, stories and news about food and the part it plays in their lives using the theme Celebrating culture through food.

See our campaign on Twitter and search using #ISMD2015 and #BigSchoolLunch to see stories and pictures of favourite dishes and traditional school meal as part of our International School Meals Day celebrations. For more news, stories and pictures see our tumblr.
