We are committed to working in partnership with our schools to provide a healthy and nutritionally balanced meal in an enjoyable lunch time experience.
We are committed to ensuring our menus are in line with Government food standards, working closely with schools to design a menu to suit individual schools ideas. Pupils are often involved in helping to create the menu, giving them a greater choice of what appears on the menu.
