Aspens is the company chosen by your school to provide the meal service. We specialise in providing catering to schools and colleges across the country.

The food children eat at school plays an important role in their well-being; eating a well-balanced diet will not only maintain and improve their health, but will also set them on the right track for later life. We understand this and that’s why we are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our kitchen.

Lots of choice

We have a fantastic range to choose from and we make sure that we serve the variety of food that children like and want to eat. It’s not all about eating vegetables and fruit – although we do make sure we get our balance right!

Responsible catering

At Aspens we take our responsibility of catering for today’s children and young adults seriously. All of our dishes are freshly prepared every day, using quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients that are responsibly sourced.

As well as ensuring the food on the plate is healthy, we want children to understand the importance of eating the right foods and help them with their food and nutrition journey.

Special diets and food allergens

Don’t think that your child can’t enjoy our great food if he or she has a special diet – this is an important part of our catering service. We can provide food if children have an intolerance, an allergy, or require an alternative choice due to religious beliefs.

Legislation requires caterers to provide allergen information on food sold that is served ‘unpackaged’. Aspens already cater for lots of children with allergies and we regularly check the information from suppliers to see if there have been any ingredient changes. It is still important that families talk to us, so we can work together and continue to provide meals that are safe for their children to eat.

Free school meals

Great value for money

We have a range of meal deals on offer every day to help save money. Whether children want a hot meal or something to just grab and go, there will be an offer available. We also run a range of guest offers and special theme days to create a buzz in the dining room.
