Co-operative education catering service – Southampton City Council
Posted on 5th March, 2019
Since spinning out from the local council in April 2015, we have transformed the way that we serve our local community. City Catering Southampton has evolved from being a provider of meals to a non-for-profit organisation who believes that great quality food, served with kindness and care is a right, not a privilege.
Now, the schools, families and vulnerable adults whom we serve sit at the heart of our organisation. We’re the city’s principal provider of school meals, serving hot lunches at 63% of the city’s 75 school and nursery settings. School meals account for more than 90% of what we currently do. Our Member schools are represented on our board of trustees and are now fully engaged with a range of initiatives that support the modernisation of school meals and the promotion of food education. We also work with school representatives and local business leaders who help shape our charitable impact, allowing us to support Southampton’s community through a range of community food projects.
