Education Catering can provide much more than just school lunches – simply let us know what you need and when you need it. Sandwiches for a governors’ meeting, packed lunches for an inset day or canapes for a special visitor, let alone piri piri chicken or handmade pizza for a parent-teacher night are just some of the requests we can cook for you.

To order and for prices, simply speak to your school’s unit manager or your district manager who can discuss your requirements with you. Alternatively, you can contact the Education Catering offices directly.

For all Hampshire County Council schools, hospitality is provided at cost during school hours if held on the premises. Catering for academies, external contracts and third parties are inclusive of VAT.
