Scottish food familyWe’re a group of parents, chefs, campaigners and all sorts of ordinary folk, interested in making Scotland the home of a great food culture.

Nick Nairn
I’m passionate about food – I want my children and all children in Scotland to grow up understanding food. To know where it comes from, what it tastes like and what ‘good’ food means. By joining the Food Family, you can help make this happen.

Kaye Adams
I’m supporting the Food Family because I want to see my kids eat well and I think we have the potential to be a great food nation.

Dave Payne
My daughter Martha’s neverseconds blog showed that things weren’t right with her school meals, but we’ve struggled to make things better.

I’m joining the Food Family to help improve school meals and the food culture in Scotland for all children.

Carina Contini
Food for us is a way of life – we call it happy food. Good food enjoyed with friends and family. In our restaurants the food is simple but good. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone could eat fresh good food and understand why that is the best choice for them and their families, for producers, farmers, animals and environment? Good food not only is good for everyone it tastes great too! That’s why I’m joining the Food Family.

What our aims are

  • To improve our relationship with food.
  • To give more priority to food education in Scotland.
  • To give all Scottish children great school meals.
  • To join together as a country to be proud of Scottish food.
  • To create a Scottish Food Day,celebrated by all on St Andrews Day.

What we do

We’re looking for your help, because together we have a louder voice. We’re creating a big group of fellow food lovers, home cooks, professionals – anyone and everyone – to join us in trying to improve the way we eat in Scotland.

There are lots of ways we can do this. We’re going to start a Scottish Food Day on St Andrews Day, where we all eat Scottish for a day and join together to celebrate.

We’d also like to make sure all our kids can cook. Wouldn’t it be great if every child could cook a pot of soup by the time they left primary school? And every young adult could cook a couple of main meals with protein, carbs and veg by the time they’re 16? We’d like to make that happen – and the more support we get, the more possible it becomes.

We want to help everyone, but with special attention towards those who need it most – making sure we all have access to good fresh food, and the skills to prepare it, like knowing which chefs knife should be used for different produce .

And we’d like to hear what some of you are already doing in your family, your area or your school. Join up, and tell us what you’re up to.
