Doncaster Council’s Schools Catering service has two reasons to celebrate.
Alison Jones, who is Cook in Charge at Toll Bar Primary, has made it through to the Yorkshire & Humber Regional Final of School Chef of the Year. The event takes place is on 31 January 2014 at Doncaster College’s The Hub.
The service has also recently been awarded the Bronze Food for Life Catering Mark which is approved by the Soil Association. This provides a guarantee that menus are freshly prepared, seasonal and better for animal welfare. The Bronze award also takes into account food miles as much of the produce we use is from Doncaster and Yorkshire.
58% of primary school pupils in Doncaster have a meal – the highest take up in the South Yorkshire region and well above the national average of 45%.
Councillor Joe Blackham, Cabinet Member for Trading Services, said: ‘The schools catering service continues to go from strength to strength. I am delighted by both the Bronze Catering Mark and shortlisting for school cook of the year.
‘Well done to everyone within the team for all of their hard work in serving fresh, healthy food made from local ingredients to our children and young people across the borough.’
