9 May 2011

Individuals who take advantage of cashless catering techniques have been told of changes being made to school kitchens within Sheffield.

The South Yorkshire city's council has agreed a new contract with meals provider Taylor Shaw, which means that they will be replacing current supplier Chartwells as of August 1st.

As a result of the deal, the firm will be cooking up meals for 121 institutes, covering secondary and primary schools, nurseries, children's centres and special schools across Sheffield, from the second half of the year.

Parents who opt for school dinner services for their youngsters will also be interested to hear that Taylor Shaw intends to return on-site cooking to every school within its contract that are lacking kitchen facilities, as well as using local suppliers for as many ingredients as possible.

Leah Barratt, service manager for the School Food Service at Sheffield Council, noted: "Taylor Shaw provided an excellent proposal which embraced schools' requirements regarding flexibility and a more bespoke approach to school meals."

Meanwhile, those who opt for Jamie Oliver's school catering recipes could be better performing in educational tests, according to recent research by academics.
