Concern: Can this be sourced sustainably?
Response: Councillor Wendy Maples liaising with County officers re the contract with school food providers to better follow existing good practice or to change practice where needed. There is limited scope due to cost and the availability of local produce in the consistent volume required but Cllr Maples is working with County Officers.
Support: Main leads are Alaric Parry and Evie Harris from South Malling school with additional advice from Dr Meike Fechter and Dr Joanna Smallwood from the University of Sussex.
