Here at the School Food Company we are passionate about good quality school food. That's why, in 2007, we formed a company committed to getting local produce into the kitchens of primary schools in Cheshire.
For the same price as a meal, which can often arrive frozen from a long way away, we have revolutionised the way school meals are served. We provide good, honest locally sourced food. We offer free range and organic ingredients within our menus which come directly from farm to fork.
Instead of processed powdered cake mix, children enjoy cakes made from scratch using free range eggs. Instead of frozen free flow mince, packaged in the UK, fresh organic minced beef comes straight from the local farm. Frozen slab pizza has been replaced with freshly made pizza and tired looking fruit baskets have been replaced with fresh and appealing fruit platters.
School Food Company provide locally sourced and organic ingredients for the price of a standard school lunch!
We work as part of the school community rather than an outside catering company. We actively participate in School Nutritional Action Groups, food related school events and work hard to promote a whole school approach to food. We have established links with local farms and businesses and are able to extend these links to pupils via educational visits so children can learn about the whole journey from field to plate first hand.
School Food Company also assist schools in running cooking workshops - not only can the children learn about where their food comes from but they can also learn how to cook it!
For schools who may be considering or currently run their meals service 'In House', School Food Company offer an affordable management and consultancy service to help schools deliver their own sustainable school meals service.
