A thriving primary school in Soho's Great Windmill Street, Soho Parish School is a success story. And no better example of its success is its food. An enlightened head teacher, governors and parents seized the opportunity to break away from a long-term local authority contract to start producing school meals in-house. With Anita Coppins in charge of the new kitchen, the uptake rocketed from less than 30% to 95%.
Together with Margot Henderson's yearly fundraising event, The Soho Food Feast, now a major highlight of London's food scene, is a truly inspirational initiative. It is also a lot of fun!
