Packed lunches: statement

12th July 2013

If you have read the news today click here, you will have seen that headteachers are being urged to ban packed lunches. This will not happen at Fowey Community College either now or in the future.

We are more than happy for parents and carers to opt for a packed lunch for their child(ren).

Adam Colton, our head chef, prepares cooked meals from scratch, using the freshest ingredients (we even now grow our own organic salad vegetables which are used in the school canteen salad bar) and we’re really delighted about the increasing take-up of school meals by our students. There are several hot meal options and equal numbers of cold meal options, including salad, protein portions, yogurt and fruit.

However, we understand that many students will go home to a cooked meal in the evenings and therefore require only a light packed lunch.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
