Design your own Lunch Main Meal

NYES Catering is excited to announce our Design your own Lunch Main Meal competition! We want your pupils to get creative and learn about what goes into making and designing a main meal. It also gives them a fantastic opportunity to have their favourite meal on their school’s Autumn 2021 Menu!


We want pupils to set their creative minds free, have fun with food – all whilst learning more about their school lunches. We have the opportunity for you to design your own Lunch Main Meal, name it as you wish, and if you are one of our winners – your meal will feature on the Autumn 2021 Menu across all of our NYES Catering sites. We hope this will be a fun challenge, and that you enjoy the opportunity of having your favourite meal item on your school’s menu cycle for the whole of Autumn 2021 Term!

The judges will be our two fantastic Training & Development Chefs – our in-house experts in all things food, and healthy eating. Plus the added help of our Marketing and Communications Officer to ensure there was plenty of fun had whilst designing the meals.

The winner and runner up will have their meal featured on the menu for the full Autumn 2021 Term in all of the schools across the county that are catered by us.

We will also share some tips to creating a main meal to help aid with the design process.
