Our catering provision moved in-house in September 2019, and has developed exponentially.
Our outstanding catering team alongside the management of Swanmore College has evolved the full catering provision that we offer to our pupils and staff alike, with a clear emphasis on healthy eating and sustainability.
We have worked hard to attain Allergen Accreditation and have implemented “Natashas Law”, which became a legal requirement as of 1 October 2021. Alongside this, we are a corporate member of Anaphylaxis UK, ensuring that we have a collaborative partnership, enabling the college to have a more effective understanding of the allergy issues to hand
We focus on sustainability, looking to significantly reduce our use of plastic and instead opting for an environmentally friendlier solution.
Our management team have agreed a partnership with Bidfood, ensuring we have access to high quality, sustainable produce at affordable prices.
We offer service before school as well as at both lunchtime and breaktime.
Pupils have access to a varied range of food choices, with differing menu’s including home cooked meals, loaded jackets, pasta pots, snacks, salad pots, sandwiches and fresh fruit salads. Homemade cakes and cookies can also be found on the menu along with a good selection of drinks.
We use a cashless system for the purchase of food and drink; this can be accessed through biometric technology or a swipe card meaning pupils don’t need to carry cash on them and parents can track purchases and spend online.
We are a nut free catering facility, and all our pre-packed foods are labelled with the ingredients and highlighted allergens, in order that pupils and staff can make themselves aware prior to consumption should they have any intolerances.
