We reach over 20,000 (and counting) pupils each day, helping the school kitchen teams to serve up clean, healthy, inexpensive, generation-powering, mind-opening, society-changing food in schools.

It’s a no brainer – hungry or tired kids don’t learn. If we fuel the future well, kids will benefit and social mobility improves. But we also believe that food should be good to eat. We want to see teachers, school staff and all pupils lining up to see what’s on the menu and enjoying the dishes.

We won’t lie, it can be challenging changing the school food, but it’s worth it.

Don’t take our word for it, here’s what School Teachers have to say:

“The school is thriving, academic performance is some of the highest in the country, attendance is great, behaviour brilliant and the school is 200% over subscribed with parents very keen to get their children in. It’s hard to quantify how much of this is down to the food, but the boost to the school community’s esteem in so many ways is palpable,”

Louise Nichols, Exec Head of LEAP Federation and Co-founder of Chefs in Schools

“We have quickly seen the positive results of this partnership with happy children and happy budgets. I can’t thank Chefs in Schools enough and would recommend them to others,”

Marie Kapszewicz, Coin Street Nursery

“We’ve been blown away by the difference it makes at the school. Children are excited to be eating lunch much more than they ever were, they’re asking about it and interested in the food. Head Chef James’ passion enthuses others, the number of teachers who have school dinners has shot up”.

Nick Mallender, Head Teacher at Grasmere
