Food For Life Served Here 20 months

The award scheme started in schools, however, look out for the logo at other public facing services such as hospitals, colleges and care homes.

Currently 1.7 million Food for Life Served Here meals are served each day all around the UK with 75,000 of those being from HC3S schools.

We successfully achieved the Food For Life Served Here Award in April 2018, following an initial inspection in February. The award means over 75% of the dishes on our standard two-course menu are freshly prepared and cooked from scratch. The menu options are healthy and the ingredients environmentally, ethically and sustainably sourced.

We were delighted to be reaccredited in April of this, our anniversary year; the assessors praised our continuous commitment to improving the quality of food offered to children in or schools and the dedication of our teams to work with our schools.

We are currently working on our plans for our next assessor visit in 2020.
