City Catering Southampton works in partnership with nurseries, primary, SEN and secondary schools to feed pupils across the city with nutritious school meals that fuel their learning.
Formerly part of Southampton City Council, we are a non-profit charitable organisation that has been supplying school meals to Southampton schools since 1997. We invest in the development of food education and encourage school children to make healthy food choices that will contribute to their well-being into adulthood.
Since our transformation from a business unit within Southampton City Council to our new charitable organisation, we have reduced our SLA chargers to schools by 63% and have spent over £600,000 replacing equipment and school kitchen serving over the past three years.
We provide all recruitment, training and development of kitchen staff. We have also developed a digital kitchen management system to streamline kitchen manage to limit food waste and manage food standards.
