School Meals

Introducing our new website

We are delighted to share our brand new Aspens Services website with you! We have a new brand identity, lots of movement in the design, a new colour palette and an improved customer experience. This new look and feel is all interspersed with our vision and values. Every person who visits the site will know who we are, what we stand for and why they should be one of our customers. Take a look and see what you think!

The launch of this new site comes with the launch of doing things a little differently – for the better.

Our new website is stage one of our IT upgrade for our stakeholders. We are also in the process of enhancing the Aspens App.

In order to make these changes with minimum disruption to users – we would like to update the information you have on your school site for catering, with new information, images and the latest menu cycle. This will replace the current Aspens link you may have and access to the current Aspens App.

The following pages is an example of ideally how we would like our update to look like. We will provide you with the copy and images to help shape your catering page.

We are always in the mood for good food!

We are Aspens Services, a market leading contract catering company and we specialise in school food.

We only work in the education sector so we know what our customers want. Mixing this knowledge with an understanding of what’s hot in the food world sparks creativity and excitement in our chefs. Our kitchens provide delicious home cooked food each day and cater for individual dietary requirements.

We don’t just provide food, we play our part to educate children and raise awareness about nutrition, food and where it comes from, so that they can make informed and mindful choices. Feeding our future. Please see more at

We push the boundaries here with really interesting dishes that grab a lot of attention in the world of food. We understand that tastes are expanding and students are keen for the chance of new food experiences. We also don’t forget that familiarity and comfort are what so many want, so we have plenty of choices to fit the bill. With important learning to be done, we make sure that we are feeding healthy minds as well bodies.

World Kitchen is our main secondary meal offer. With food drawing on Asian, African, Caribbean, and more traditional fare, the menu includes street food dishes, handheld versions with vegetarian and vegan choices and sides available.

Our Hot Deli builds on the popularity of our standard hot and cold deli offers, to provide more substantial meals at our grab and go counter.


The menu rotates on a three-week basis and refreshes for Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer seasons. Here’s the current menu:
