There is still time to get involved with International School Meals Day (ISMD) 2018 - and an international food competition.

ISMD aims to encourage chidren and young people around the world (with support from their teachers) to connect and talk about the food they eat and how it plays a part in their lives.

The date for ISMD is 15th March 2018 and the theme is 'My Food'.

This year's theme encourages children to share their favourite meal, perhaps provided at school or cooked at home with food that is grown locally, through the written word, photography or drawings, they can demonstrate why this food is so special to them.

Our competition seeks drawings, photographs or peoms from young people, with winners published in an international cookbook to be launched on ISMD 2018. In the run up to the day schools can encourage young people to think about and discuss their favourite foods and meals in a way that is best suited to their particular learning environment. The main thing is to celebrate the rich diversity of recipes that is sure to exist in every classroom.

We're happy to receive individual entries or joint entries if a class wants to work together to produce something as a group.

The competition is funded by the Scottish Government and closes on 31st January 2018.
