LOCAL FOOD

We appreciate that by sourcing and using local foods whenever possible in our school meals, we are not just guaranteeing quality, but also helping the environment and supporting our local economy.

Local Produce & Services

We believe strongly in sourcing as much Lincolnshire produce as possible.  But this extends further, for example we use local catering engineers, cooking equipment suppliers, stationery and printing.

We also employ many local residents, many of these are parents themselves and are thrilled to be cooking for their own children!

British produce is renowned for being some of the best in the World. We work closely with local suppliers and use as much fresh Lincolnshire produce as we can.

Select Lincolnshire aims to showcase the range and quality of Lincolnshire produce and support Lincolnshire producers.
