Thousands of children to benefit from FREE Pasta King School meals

We have seen huge changes in the last year in school meal provision with schools closing, packed lunches being brought in and even meal boxes for use at home, however research shows that the most effective way of feeding children in the middle of the day, to help improve academic performance, is by having a hot meal.  We want to ensure that hot meals are quite literally back on the table for children returning to school and so we are offering tens of thousands of free meals to schools.

They can use these meals to help with their free school meal provision or for school clubs that are still able to meet or for some other purpose within their local communities. We shall leave those decisions up to the schools.

The 60,000 free meals will be flavoured with Pasta King’s two most popular varieties, pomodoro and basilico and will be provided to schools together with their usual orders for Pasta King sauces, rice and pasta. The scheme is available to all schools across England, Scotland and Wales and will run from 8th March to 2nd April.

Pasta King’s pop-up cafes ensure school catering is safe, efficient, cost-effective and nutritious.

Pasta King is best known for producing high-quality, tasty, nutritional meals for schools and other public sector organisations and our new Pop-up Cafes can help do that in the unique circumstances we are currently facing. Many schools simply cannot feed their entire school population safely from their normal  dining halls, so our solution brings the food out to other areas, moving one person around the school rather than dozens.

We understand that getting schools functioning under extreme conditions is already a tough task for many school staff and we want to alleviate the pressure of working out how to serve up balanced, healthy meals while ensuring safety is a priority. This is especially vital as recent research from the National Food Strategy revealed that only 1% of packed lunches meet the nutritional standards of a school meal.

The importance of good nutrition for brain activity and function can never be underestimated which is why we want to play a role in dishing out good food for thought at a time when it is needed most.
