Gonville Academy receives the Bronze Catering Mark!

Catering News

We are happy to announce that Gonville Academy has been awarded the Soil Association’s Bronze Food for Life Catering Mark, for serving fresh lunches that meet nutritional guidelines. More and more, people want to know where their food comes from and how it has been made. As a Catering Mark-award holder the STEP Catering Team have proved that they maintain high standards of traceability, freshness and provenance. The award recognises caterers who serve fresh food which is free from controversial additives and better for animal welfare, and includes a rigorous on-site
inspection.

The Food for Life Catering Mark is an independent endorsement, backed by annual inspections, for food providers who are taking steps to improve the food they serve.
The aim of the scheme is to encourage and reward caterers who:

  • Serve fresh food
  • Source environmentally sustainable and ethical food
  • Make healthy eating easy, and
  • Champion local food producers.

The STEP Catering Team aim to provide healthy, well-balanced menus that pupils will enjoy and as such, all meals are freshly prepared in school each morning and meet the rigorous school food guidelines set out by the Government.

For just £1.95 per day your child can enjoy:

  • A choice of freshly cooked main courses
  • Fresh salad or vegetables
  • Bread
  • A tasty pudding

Our school meals are designed to give your child exactly the right kind of foods to keep them going until teatime, including lots of energy-giving carbohydrates and at least two of their five a day fruit and vegetables.

If your child doesn’t already have a hot lunch in school, why not introduce them? You might be surprised.
