Answer for Universal Free School Meals

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As you are aware, during my Mayoralty I have been supportive of the work of the School Food Plan and its endeavours, including its recommendation for a rollout of universal free school meals for 4 to 7 year olds across the country.

My commitment to this issue has been reflected through delivering my two food flagship boroughs in London.
