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 school's ideas. Pupils are often involved in helping to create the menu, giving them a greater choice of what appears on it.
Our primary school menus provide a choice of two main courses (one being a vegetarian option), a choice of carbohydrates, two vegetables, a fresh salad bar, bread and a choice of desert, including fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese and biscuits.
Our menu for a secondary schools is based on a Food Court to offer a number of choices, allowing pupils to choose from a variety of options. Some schools have a breakfast menu, morning break and lunch, which consists of hot choices, a sandwich bar, and a choice of drinks and deserts.
All of our school menus have received the Telford & Wrekin Council Healthier Catering Commitment award. This is awarded to catering premises for their kitchen's hygiene, menu and cooking methods – oven-baked rather than fried foods.
Our food is prepared in the kitchen daily and we use fresh ingredients were possible. Our meat is sourced in the United Kingdom and as local to Shropshire as possible. We use award-winning sausages made in Welshpool and produced for schools to ensure that they are compliant with school nutritional food standards.
Our fruit and vegetables are supplied from Shrewsbury using local produce where possible.
We only use free range eggs, which are laid in Clun, for which we have the Good Egg Award.
We only use fish that is sustainable and is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council.
Cultural and dietary menu requirements
We work closely with parents/carers and schools to provide a special or cultural dietary requirement. This can include meeting with individual parents/carers to agree a menu to ensure their child's needs are met.
