This gives us the freedom to buy where we want to, and being a Community College giving business to the community is our first concern which is why we buy our produce locally.
We use biodegradable food containers, including knives and forks, purchased from Purple Planet. We recycle cans, plastics and cardboard in the kitchen and we also use rapeseed oil for cooking.
The catering facilities have been scored a 5 from Environmental Health.
If any child suffers from a food allergy, please let us know.
Suppliers that we use include:
- Vegetables and free range eggs from Tamar Fruiterers at Hatt
- Meat from Tamar Valley Butchers at Gunnislake and Chris Rounsevell butchers at Caradon Town, Pensilva
- Dried / frozen goods from Hunts and M J Baker
- Pasta Bar from Newton Abbot
College lunch breaks are split into two areas so that students do not all flock to the cafeteria at the same time. This means that more students can sit down and have a proper meal, instead of eating standing up.
Facilities are available to students during the following times:-
8.00 am – 8.30 am
Breakfast – bacon rolls, croissants, fresh fruit, yogurts, waffles
10.55 am – 11.15 pm
All years have a 20 minute break during this time as a snack break, serving paninis, sandwiches, pizza, burgers, local pasties, fruit and drinks. See menu below for snacks that are available this week.
13.20 pm – 2.00 pm
All years have a 40 minute meal break.
