Commitment to families


Our vision is to improve the life chances of children and young people through the food choices they make now and in the future. 


Working with your child's school we're committed to improve all pupils well-being and give them the best possible start in life.  What they eat and, importantly, their understanding of how it arrives on their plate and the impact it has on their health are an important part of what drives our services. 

  • Change 4 Life

    Supporting families

    Waltham Forest Catering supports Change4Life. We know that in order to maintain a healthy weight we need to both eat better and move more. Our aim is to support families to make changes that will help them live healthier and longer lives. One way is to eat nutritious school meals every day to help your child achieve a healthy eating habit for the future.
