Solihull Mayor celebrates National School Meals Week
The Mayor of Solihull Councillor Mrs Diana Holl-Allen MBE recently enjoyed lunch with pupils at Marston Green Infant Academy as part of National School Meals Week (NSMW) 2023.

Solihull Catering Service is part of Solihull Council and provides school lunches for 70 primary schools across Solihull and Coventry.

With two seasonal menus a year, running a three-week rotation, pupils are offered a range of fresh, tasty and healthy meals, using locally sourced and high-quality ingredients.

The Mayor commented: “All the food looks delicious. There’s a good range of options to choose from and it's great to see the pupils tucking in and enjoying lunch together in such a friendly environment. It was a pleasure to share such a lovely meal with the pupils.”

Pupils have a daily choice of two main courses, including a vegetarian option and a dessert, salad bar, fruit and home baked bread all for £2.70.  

Beverley Elliott, headteacher at Marston Green Infant Academy, added: “Providing pupils with hot nutritious meals at lunch time is such an important part of the school day. School meals play an important role in the well-being of pupils and helps improve their concentration and energy levels, as well as making sure they get the right nutrition in the middle of the day.”
