Feeding Hungry Minds

Our approach is simple; we love to feed hungry minds! Learners of all ages need refuelling during a busy day in the classroom and we're here to make sure there's plenty of delicious, nutritious and home-cooked food ready for eating when the lunch bell rings.


For us, it's very important that we serve freshly prepared, healthy food which tastes great. Quality ingredients are a must and we pride ourselves on using British and local produce to underpin our ‘fresh is best’ ethos.


We offer a personalised food service solution and our menus are developed by our experienced local Wakefield Food Development Team and dedicated Nutritionist to ensure that, as a minimum, we meet the nutritional standards associated with the Food for Life Served Here Bronze accreditation.

School lunchtimes are not just about the food on the plate, they’re about the whole dining experience we provide for our young customers! Great food, served by friendly cooks in welcoming and inspiring environments is what makes school lunches great, helping us to create memorable dining moments which keep children coming back for more.

Ultimately, we know that fresh and tasty food is fundamental to young people’s health, academic achievement and social development and can improve their performance. ‘Feeding Hungry Minds’ underpins our ethos and vision and is at the heart of everything we do.
