“This is not merely another story of a school meals service revolutionised by the arrival of a trained chef, determined to prepare everything from scratch. It’s also about the vital therapeutic role good food can play in the lives of a community that needs it most. It is about the pleasures of the table that so many of us take for granted being extended to people for whom the commonplace is a struggle. And it’s about preparing vulnerable children for the realities of life beyond school.” from the article by Jay Rayner.

This approach fits beautifully with our work on lunchtimes and dining halls. Our new book “How to create calm dining halls” is now in stock, brimming with ideas on how to improve the dining hall in terms of organisation, noise levels, environment, behaviour, healthy nutrition, enjoyment and much more.
