NURSERY AND SCHOOLS CATERING FAQ'S
There are many benefits to using contract schools catering companies such as MyDine. One of which is cost saving. With MyDine Catering, you only pay for the pupils you request catering for, and only when you need it. This helps reduce the cost for full-time onsite cooks and onsite chefs.
Our school catering services means you also don’t need to pay the daily running costs to keep your kitchen running throughout the course of the year that can save an organisation thousands of pounds across a school term and full year.
On average our schools catering clients have saved between £10,000 and £15,000 per year by simply outsourcing their food provisions to MyDine Catering.
We deliver our catering for schools in professional thermoboxes and gastronorm trays to ensure your food stays hot and at a safe food temperature. On arrival all food items are checked for their temperature and recorded to ensure they are safe to consume.
For chilled foods our catering arrives in insulated cool boxes to ensure food is safe to consume.
Our outsourced contract schools catering services means you will be able to reduce kitchen staff numbers needed onsite throughout the lunch period. We deliver food both hot and cold, which means you’ll only need a small number of part-time staff to serve food and wash up.
