St George's Lunch Menu
Week 1 (starting from Monday 30 November)
Thomas Franks Scotland: Catering at St George's
Thomas Franks Scotland are delighted to announce that we are the new catering partner for St George’s. As the newly appointed caterer, we will make it our mission to ensure that the catering matches the same level of excellence in all other areas of school life. Thomas Franks Scotland is a unique caterer with a genuine passion for great food, locally sourced ingredients, and exceptional service. We recognise the value and importance of food and nutrition throughout school life and make it our mission to ensure every meal is a dining experience to remember.
We know fresh ingredients; a variety of flavours and nutrient-rich dishes are core to good food. Seasonality is at the forefront of our chefs’ minds. Supported by the wealth of knowledge from our in-house Nutritionists, Christine and Olivia, the chefs will create fully balanced and flavour-packed menus. We give our chefs access to hundreds of local and regional suppliers because, as a chef-led company, we understand the significant difference that fresh, high-quality raw ingredients make to a final dish.
In school we will continue our practice of not knowingly using nuts (tree nuts nor peanuts) in our school lunch production or in the food that we offer at other times. We cannot however guarantee that our food will always be ‘nut free’. Increasingly we are seeing the disclaimer ‘also may contain nuts’ included in the labelling of the raw materials that we buy in. We will continue our practice not to use foods that state they are made in a factory that also handles nuts or, although not listing nuts in the ingredients, actually state that they are not suitable for nut allergy sufferers.
We ask for your help with this by not giving your child foods that contain nuts or use the phrases ‘made in a factory that also handles nuts’ or ‘not suitable for nut allergy sufferers’ to bring in to school.
Halal & Gluten Free options are also available on request, please just ask a member of the team.
