School Supper Club
Iceland Foods is on a mission to save hot dinners and support families through the cost-of-living crisis this winter. As part of their support, the supermarket has launched a School Supper Club initiative across the UK in partnership with ParentKind.
This winter initiative will see families, kids and staff from a selection of schools across the country come together to deliver hot meals for their local community.
All food and drink will be donated by Iceland Foods and the PTAs participating in this initiative will also be equipped with the marketing assets needed to promote the event in the local area.
The supermarket will also share a range of recipe ideas and instructions on how to use more energy efficient cooking methods such as air fryers, slow cookers and microwaves through Iceland’s recently launched blog, Affoodable.

Since 1970, Iceland has been proudly demonstrating to shoppers just how the Power of Frozen can deliver an extensive choice of high quality, great-tasting food from fine sources around the world at great value prices, while naturally generating low levels of food waste.
Research conducted by Manchester Metropolitan University suggested that switching to frozen food can reduce household food bills by as much as £1500 a year.
Always committed to doing the right thing for customers, communities and the environment, Iceland was a pioneer in removing artificial colours, flavours and nonessential preservatives from its own label food in the 1980s, and in banning genetically modified ingredients in the 1990s. In 2018 it committed to becoming the first major retailer, globally, to eliminate plastic packaging from all of its own label products by the end of 2023, and to remove palm oil as an ingredient from its own label range by the end of 2018.
