Hot Lunches a Real Hit at St. Joseph’s N.S.

Hot Lunches a Real Hit at St. Joseph’s N.S.

St. Joseph’s are delighted that we are now providing daily hot lunches to every child in the school.

Break time snacks

The hot lunches are prepared by Glanmore Foods (a company who have won many prestigious awards for excellence in food safety and quality since 2009).

The wide and varied menu provided by Glanmore provides a choice of different meals per day. It also provides vegetarian or vegan options that cater for pupils’ religious and/or dietary requirements.

The children can choose between chicken tenders, beef, lasagne, roast chicken with vegetables and gravy, macaroni and cheese, vegetarian sausages and baked fish fingers to name but a few. Morning snacks at break time include yogurt, cheese, rice cakes, flapjacks and delicious fruit.

 

The children choose from a diverse online menu. Parents can help their child chose their meal at home.

 

From kitchen to table:

All health and safety requirements are followed to ensure your child gets a hot meal delivered to their classroom just in time for their lunch!

Ms. Hughes, our Covid 19 Health and Safety Officer, completes daily checks to ensure all safety guidelines are being adhered to.

 

A Successful Initiative:

From the offset, the hot food has been received very well by the pupils and parents alike. One child said ‘It is better than The Lisdoo restaurant…!’

While a parent at the gate said ‘It is wonderful to know that my daughter will be getting a hot meal every day’.

All packaging is being recycled in compostable bags as St. Joseph’s continues its journey of protecting the planet by reusing and recycling at every opportunity.
