Ealing schools catering consortium (ESCC)
The majority of primary and specials schools buy into the Ealing Schools Catering Consortium (ESCC) for their catered meals under a contract which is managed by Ealing's education services. The ESCC members manual is available to view in the download section below (log in to view).
ISS Ltd is currently appointed as Catering Contractor under this contract.
Menus are run on a three-week cycle and change twice during the academic year to allow for seasonal changes and ensure variety. The menus are developed to provide healthy and balanced choices that are appealing to children while being compliant with the School Food Standards.
Copies of the school menus are available from the schools directly or on the ISS website www.feedinghungryminds.co.uk
In 2015 the Department for Education introduced the School Food Standards, as part of the School Food Plan. These standards which are built on a nutritional framework to ensure meals provided are meeting children’s nutritional needs. Further information on both the School Food Plan and Standards can be found here http://www.schoolfoodplan.com/
