School Meals



We believe that Lunchtime should be the highlight of the day for everyone at Ely St John's Community Primary School.

We want to help children gain a real appreciation for good quality food, where it comes from, how it’s produced and why healthy food is important.

School meals are provided by Cambridge-based specialist schools caterer; The Lunchtime Company They provide delicious, nutritious and healthy meals every day.

Together we offer children a wonderful choice of hot food, fresh vegetables, freshly baked bread, fresh fruit, yogurt, jacket potatoes… there really is something for everyone.

All meals are cooked from fresh ingredients every day, sourced locally (where possible within a 60 mile radius of the school), and prepared on-site.  From the Autumn Term 2021 we are offering separate Vegan and Dairy Free menus in addition to our Main Menu choices.

Over the course of the academic year we provide an array of theme days, activities, cookery classes and charity events – these are advertised around the school and on the website.

We would really love to invite parents, grandparents and carers to come and dine with your children and experience first-hand the amazing food. Just let us know when you would like to come in. We look forward to sharing with you.
