ISS Serves over 120,000 Curries for National School Meals Week
School caterer ISS has supported this year’s National School Meals Week (NSMW) by serving up over 120,000 curries, as well as chocolate sponge with custard, the menu that was voted as the nation’s favourite school meal of the last 25 years.
And it wasn’t just schools who benefitted from the tasty menu. ISS served the two dishes in its restaurants at the ISS UK head office in Weybridge and London office at South Quay.
ISS celebrated NSMW, which ran from 12th-16th November, in other ways too, taking part in the Soil Association Food For Life’s Roast Dinner Day for around 500 schools, and by sending 13 of its school chefs to restaurants and other kitchens for the Host a School Chef programme. Cheryl Humphries, catering manager at High Weald School in Kent, recently enjoyed a day with the head development chef from Kraft Heinz, who sponsor the programme. Cheryl toured their offices in the Shard, followed by an afternoon in Borough Market learning about food trends.
Steve Kemp, sector director at ISS Education, said: “I couldn’t be happier with how our National School Meals week activities went. It’s wonderful to see so many of our staff and schools engaging with the celebrations. When I see children excited to try healthy, homemade food, socialising while they eat, and leaving the dining room happy and satisfied it shows how important great school food is. What LACA do is fantastic, and I am glad we have the opportunity to support NSMW.”
