Cook and eat training
A quality catering service for your school, which provides full meals and snacks during the school day, plus other catering for functions and events on request.
It is widely acknowledged that children require a quality meal at lunchtime in order to learn successfully through the school day. Ensuring that the food they are given meets suitable standards and that staff are highly trained can be a challenge.
Kirklees catering service provides a comprehensive and professional catering service that is tailored to meet your individual school’s needs.
We can provide full meals and snacks at lunchtimes, other identified times during the day and catering for functions/ events on request. We can also support you in other areas such as school milk and the management of your kitchen facilities.
Our aim is to manage the catering service to meet your needs and those of your pupils in a flexible and responsive way so that you are free to focus on education, not the management of catering services.
