This is a time of deep concern both within our industry and for our families and friends. Whatever your role in school food, the impact of the coronavirus is massive and changing daily. During this crisis we will work constantly to bring you trusted advice, clear information and every support for when we get back to normal – whatever and whenever that may be.
As the situation develops you can be sure that we will stay in touch, keep talking to the Government and share news of innovative ideas or advice that may help you cope and plan for the day schools fully reopen.
The NSG have conducted a member survey to get feedback on the Government response to the Covid-19 situation. You can view the results here.
We want to hear from you
In return please do send us good news stories of all that you and your teams are doing – please keep to less than 100 words and we will post them on our website and on social media with your permission. I want to ensure that the good we do as an industry is not dismissed and is celebrated as it should be.
