Our Policies

Our policies are fundamental to how we work.

We've continually improved and developed the catering service in line with healthy eating guidance food trends and other legislative changes. 

We aim to buy local food as it's fresher, healthier and tastes better, because it spends less time in transit from farm to plate, and therefore, loses fewer nutrients and incurs less spoilage.  Also because of the shorter distribution chains for local foods, less food is wasted in distribution, warehousing and merchandising.

'Having vegan choices on our menu is great for the planet and it’s not right to hurt animals – it’s just wrong!' Mason, Pupil at Jenny Hammond Primary School
