Our Services

In collaboration with our school partners we provide a range of bespoke services to support the whole school.


We’re also able to offer support and advice on promoting school meals through printed marketing materials, taster sessions, theme day ideas, and support for parents' evenings.


Through running events we’re able to be part of the school as well as get to know parents and pupils. Attendance at key school events enable parents the opportunity to provide feedback and introduce the school catering team to new families.


2022 Winner UK Greenest School Menu League: WF Catering currently serve up one million plant-based school meals a year across 50 primary schools.


Testimonial from Claire Nairne, Headteacher Handsworth Primary School, Highams Park

'As we come to the end of the term  just I wanted to email you both to thank you for the amazing service Theresa (Head Cook) is providing.


It has been a very tough term with children's needs continuing to be a challenge for us all. However, Theresa remains positive, helpful, willing and considerate in all she does. Despite the challenges, she gives the children a wonderful experience in the school hall and I am so so impressed with her food!


The staff enjoy her lunches and our numbers have risen. She is an asset to Waltham Forest Catering.'
