School meals

Solihull Catering Services

As a local authority caterer we are committed to ensuring those children in vulnerable groups across our schools are catered for during these unprecedented COVID-19 times.

We would like to reassure both our children and parents that these groups will continue to be catered for during this period of time. We can confirm that the majority of our sites remain open and are providing a hot meal menu as normal to those pupils who remain in school.

Currently the meal provision within each school will be dependant on the COVID-19 restrictions in place, which is locally agreed with your school for the safety of pupils and staff. Meal provision may therefore differ from school to school and may include the option of a packed lunch or hot/cold classroom food for both free school meal pupils and those who will remain in school due to parents being critical workers.

Please be assured that as the catering provider to your schools, this service will continue for as long as it is required.

Our award winning school meals have never tasted better and we are proud to offer pupils across Solihull a great range of delicious, healthy meals, using locally sourced and high quality ingredients.

We do not serve fizzy drinks or chocolate bars and do not serve fried foods more than twice a week.
