Mellors Catering Services
Mellors Catering Services is very proud to be the appointed contract caterer at St Wilfrid's. We are an award-winning, established, family-run business that has been catering successfully for Primary, Secondary School and Further Education sectors across the North of England since 1995. We are very proud to have won Contract Caterer of the Year 2017.
We strongly believe that healthy eating and good hydration will improve pupil performance and concentration and we pride ourselves on using locally sourced seasonal produce to provide the best quality food for your child.
Weekly menus provided by Mellors Catering Services have been planned to offer choice and variety for your child that doesn’t cost the earth. We provide hot specials of the day, fresh vegetables or salad, a vegetarian choice, hot and cold desserts, snacks and sandwiches, juices and drinks.
With children’s health a priority, we have replaced full fat dressing with light mayonnaise, refined sugar for fruit where possible and removed all frozen veg from our suppliers’ lists.
We run regular themed poster campaigns – where we produce fun, themed menus and decorate the dining area. Sampling sessions are also held throughout the year to encourage pupils to try a variety of new foods.
School Food Standards
Mellors Catering Services is very proud to exceed School Food Standards, meaning we provide a balanced diet with the essential nutrients your child needs. Menus developed by Mellors Catering Services ensure your child is given the healthiest choices that provide them with at least two of the recommended 5-a-day portions of fruit and veg.
