Fantastic work Jayne, thank you
Sheila Best
34:56
Do you think the Food Fund will cover costs for the 3 months?
Jill Muirie
35:05
Jayne, that was a great run through - thanks. Were your food coordinators already in post, or were they appointed as part of your covid response?
Zoe McIntyre
35:12
We'll take questions from all 3 Scottish questions together!
Kate Hindley
35:44
Awesome job Jayne. Hello to All, Kate @ Harfield Tablewar
Judith Gregory
35:54
Great presentation Jayne, and well done on the great work you are doing!
Anna Taylor
35:54
Jane - do you think the need will continue at the same levels in the coming months as in the first few weeks of lockdown or is it changing?
Simon Shaw
36:05
Thank you for that presentation Jayne. Is there a particular reason why the particularly frail people are getting the frozen meals? Was this about their preference and/or what was possible to deliver to them? Do they get a number of meals in one delivery rather than daily meals? Thanks, Simon
Diane Dunn
36:16
Interested in the supermarket credit facility. What supermarkets were involved? How did that work? Thanks
Katherine Wyke
37:02
Hi Jayne, was this for families of school children or all vulnerable families?
Jeanette Orrey

Fantastic Jayne just shows what can be achieved Jeanette Orrey Co Founder food for life

will these slides be available to all after the webinar?

Hi Margaret - yes we'll share slides after the webinar and this is also being recorded
Jeanette Orrey
44:20
This is amazing Mark and team East Ayrshire congratulations to everyone for your hard work and care
Jayne Jones
50:16
Those issues highlighted by John are all emerging through our own response, too, in Argyll and Bute.
Zoe McIntyre
51:09
Any questions for any of the three Scottish speakers send them through!
office@foodfoundation.org.uk
52:34
Hi John - are you able to breakdown your data by local authority area?
Diane Dunn
53:01
John, did you get responses from throughout Scotland?
Jill Stewart
53:20
Are you planning for increased need for resources over the summer months? What measures are in place in preparation for this?
Jill Muirie
54:08
John, in terms of what is needed to address these emerging stresses going forward, I take it this is primarily about maintaining adequate funding? Or are there other responses that we should be developing to support the community organisations better?
Jeanette Orrey
54:33
To both Jayne and Mark do you see the school meals service expanding for the long term to include community meals
office@foodfoundation.org.uk
54:45
Are you expecting the SG to boost the Food Fund?
Annette Lang
55:18
I would be interested to know about plans for lunch clubs and day centres and how they can support food access in a socially distanced model or is home delivery still the most likely for the future
Rebecca Gibbs
56:52
Thank you for the very valuable presentations. I’m interested to know whether info exists on the nutritional quality of food going out? Clearly the range of food will be very variable. Do we know whether those families with children are mostly getting food commensurate with healthy growth? If this is not known now is work planned to understand this?
Simon Shaw
59:42
Thank you Jayne.
Barbora Adlerova
59:50
The scale, complexity and quickness of these responses are amazing. Have people with experience of food access issues somehow helped to design these?
Diane Dunn
01:00:32
Some local authorities in Scotland provide cash to families instead of free school meals.
Julian Edwards
01:01:42
Amazing work in Scotland! Thanks and bless Jayne and all.. Julian
Jayne Jones
01:04:41
@Jill Muirie - no, we redeployed people into the Food Coordinator roles - people who understood their local communities including Head Teachers and Education Managers.
Jayne Jones
01:05:41
@Diane Dunn - happy to send details of the supermarket credit facility. We are working with the Co op, as they have the best reach across our area.
Ellen Finlay
01:06:25
Regarding Direct Payment for those on Free School Meals in Northern Ireland - the good news was that payment continued over the Easter holidays. Children in Northern Ireland are currently campaigning for the direct payment o continue over the summer. Of course there are issues regarding funding but we are hopeful!
Jayne Jones
01:07:11
@Jeanette Orrey - absolutely, this is about getting food to those who need it, without necessarily labelling people (in my view)
Peter
01:10:35
Janet, what is the growth of FSM eligibility in NI?
Zoe McIntyre
01:11:01
Any other questions for Janet?
office@foodfoundation.org.uk
01:11:22
Thank you Janet... just to clarify your point on uptake. Did people have to apply for the financial support?
Jill Stewart
01:13:04
What are the plans for over the summer? Are the payments likely to continue?
Peter
01:13:06
Do you think FSM will be offered during summer break as in Wales?
Donald Buglass
01:13:11
Are the various food schemes in NI relying on pre-existing suppliers?
Ellen Finlay
01:13:54
Minister of Education and Minister for Communities are meeting next week to discuss direct payments over the summer.
Amber Isaacs
01:15:09
Future topics - home growing and education about food security/production - I am always a farmer!
Lindsay Graham
01:18:48
Please do post your suggestions for future webinars in the chat.
Margaret Gilmour
01:19:34
Looking forward it would be really good to have a discussion on future ways to ensure that the food that young people receive is nutritious and adds value to health, the environment and the local economies of LA/Scotland overall - the 'how' LA are going to ensure that 'good food' is being provided would be of huge interest - especially in the challenging circumstances that will inevitably be needed...……..
Jeanette Orrey
01:20:05
how much is the payment for FSM to parents
Katherine Wyke
01:22:51
Are we able to find out which LA's are doing what for Wales, i.e. 17 offer payment can we have the detail? etc really useful for any national charities or national advice services.
Annette Lang
01:23:03
Do we have guidance on packed lunches and making them covid19 safe might be very relevant for those families on low income but not free school meals
Peter
01:23:44
prynhawn Da, Gareth - do you see a significant increase in demand happening for Holiday provision in Wales this summer?
Jayne Jones
01:24:21
Future topics - recovery and promo of good school food to provide reassurance to parents and the wider community
lynda Perkins
01:24:21
How are decisions made about which families get direct payments? Is it up to the families to express a preference or are other considerations taken into account? If so, what are they? Thanks.
Julian Edwards
01:25:25
Question: Do colleagues feel that packed lunches from home should be further discouraged to reduce cross contamination? Thanks Julian GY5.
Susan Walls
01:25:38
Do the presenters gather data on the demographics of the families receiving FSM or any of the other services, e.g. families with disabled children
Peter
01:28:28
How has the Breakfast scheme been affected in Wales due to COVID?
John McKendrick
01:29:59
Very impressive Judith … transition to dignified means of support. Any sense of how many of the 22% who were entitled to FSM are among the 90% who have drawn from Parent Pay
Liz Rowlett
01:30:19
are people using credit unions where people don't have bank accounts?
Margaret Rose McNaughton
01:30:37
were there any legal challenges from people who were offered food parcels rather than direct payments.
Jeanette Orrey
01:32:15
thank you to all of the speakers for a really brilliant discussion a lovely way to finish a Friday
Liz Rowlett
01:38:10
Data on young carers?
Jeanette Orrey
01:38:28
How are we going to get parents confidence back for having school meals rather than a packed lunch
Katherine Wyke
01:41:20
Wales; for families shielding vulnerable children and difficulty getting supermarket delivery and slots, what is the support for them? What does the food package involve
Andrew Pond
01:44:00
Thank you to all; very insightful and thought provoking. If we can help with anything to support the management of your changing nature of, and safe identification of allergens/nutrition/dietary preferences for your food services please do call us. Have a great weekend, Andrew & The Saffron Team
Margaret Gilmour
01:46:44
Future topics; thinking about what Anna Taylor is saying just now - a 'Shaping the Future': what are the opportunities - although the circumstances are challenging we are at a point in time when we have the chance to make the right choices for the future to improve our world!
Lynette Homer
01:47:16
Question — with the LA’s stepping up wonderfully, is this an opportunity for that ongoing responsibility to become re-embedded into the government’s (local or national) responsibility — rather than increasing pressure on charitable food aid sector?
Amber Isaacs
01:48:29
Lots of research being done into vertical and urban farming, and how these could perhaps tie into future proofing food - happy to talk bout this
Liz Rowlett
01:49:15
in Scotland have local growing strategies and opps under the community empowerment act for asset transfer
Lynette Homer
01:49:15
