Some Schools struggle to offer high quality free school meals

Posted by CaterMap

More than 3,100 primary schools — one in five find it hard to deliver cooked lunches because they lack proper kitchens and cannot afford them.

They are forced to buy-in pre-prepared meals and either keep the lunches warm or heat them up — in some cases with a microwave — on site in mini-kitchens.

In some cases, the pupils will have to eat sandwiches at a desk because there is not enough space for all the children to eat together.
