We are delighted to announce the City Kids School Food Awards #CityKidsSFA19 are open.

The School Food Awards are a unique opportunity to win an award that recognises the great work of schools and their kitchen teams. All schools are operating on budgets, and some are very tight budgets, yet many catering teams manage to provide nutritious, hot lunches for the kids. We think this should be celebrated, while also continuing the discussion surrounding around free school meals and healthy eating.

With these awards we aim to recognise those schools who are providing catering excellence and thinking beyond meat and potatoes. The awards will become a well-regarded accolade amongst parents and educators alike. Winners will be handpicked by the City Kids editorial team and a host of well-known and passionate foodies.

In our first year we are keeping it simple. The award categories are as follows:

State Sector
  • School Dinner Winner (Primary/Secondary)
  • Best School Menu (Primary/Secondary)
  • Best Vegetarian Menu (Primary/Secondary)
Independent Sector
  • School Dinner Winner (Prep/Secondary)
  • Best School Menu (Prep/Secondary)
  • Best Vegetarian Menu (Prep/Secondary)

Over the coming months we will be letting you know about the prizes on offer as well as more about our wonderful judges. So, if you’re a parent or teacher and proud of your school’s offering, please get in touch so we can shout about it for you!
