IDF joins the School Meals Coalition

19 July 2023

The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) is delighted to announce that it has partnered with the School Meals Coalition, an emerging initiative of 82 governments and NGO and corporate partners. Together they drive actions to urgently re-establish, improve and scale up food and education systems, support pandemic recovery and implement measures to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  

The Coalition supports quality school meals globally, tailoring school meal systems to local conditions and promoting the sharing of international best practices.   

The IDF Kids and Diabetes in Schools (KiDS) Programme aims to promote diabetes education and healthy habits in the school environment to support children and adolescents living with diabetes and tackle the preventable risk factors for type 2 diabetes. The quality of school meal programmes is fundamental for students to access healthy, nutritious food — contributing to a healthy and prosperous future.  

IDF looks forward to collaborating with the School Meals Coalition and its members to improve the lives of students with diabetes and those at risk of developing the condition.
