Food2Food Made Good

Our caterer, The Brookwood Partnership, is the only schools’ caterer with the top level 3 star ‘Food Made Good’ rating from The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA). This ultimately means they are actually doing what is required to make a difference.

Having become the first schools’ caterer to ever achieve the top level rating, Brookwood has worked hard over the last twelve months to not only retain this rating, but to go even further by implementing new initiatives, as a mark of its commitment to providing healthy and sustainably sourced food for our pupils.

The SRA rating has been referred to, by The Sunday Times, as the ‘Michelin Stars of Sustainability’. Brookwood’s overall score was determined from an assessment of 14 key sustainability criteria. Brookwood increased its score in all areas.

Helping pupils to know more about healthy eating and where their food comes from led to a perfect (100%) score in the healthy eating section. Having launched several new and exciting curriculum-based initiatives such as Fisherman Finn, our caterer is helping pupils to know more about their food and ensure they eat a balanced and healthy diet.

The SRA particularly noted Brookwood’s approach to sourcing sustainable fish, ethical meat and dairy products. This positive approach is also regularly communicated to our pupils through marketing materials, interactive activities and assemblies.
