HI – My name is Graham Bell. I have been an educator for the last 13 years, teaching at both primary and secondary levels in the UK and in international schools.
As part of the GetReal Campaign, the School Food Trust has teamed with WFP to launch The Really Good School Dinner Initiative. Other than being a Really Good School Dinner it is a Really Good Way of Raising Awareness and Charity!
It’s a great chance for you and your school to help children in some of the world’s poorest countries.

LONDON - During the campaign week (25 – 29 January 2010), primary and secondary school pupils pledge, on the Really Good School Dinner website, to have a school meal and to donate just 10p extra each time they do so. Each 10p goes directly to WFP to provide nutritious school meals for children in the developing world.
School children taking part in the last Really Good School Dinner raised an amazing £11,855 for WFP. Sarah Beckett from South Wilts Grammar School said: “My school took part in the Really Good School Dinner. It’s great to know we are making such a difference to other people’s lives and that we can do it so simply, by just giving just 10p”.
The next Really Good School Dinner promises to be even bigger and better. Anyone who wants to take part can sign up at www.getreal.uk.com/really-good-school-dinner. Once you have registered your school, you will receive a comprehensive information pack including lesson plans, top facts on world hunger, international recipes and much more.
We’re fighting hunger – so can you… Be part of the solution!
