Food & Nutrition


Fresh food made every day using local ingredients.

Our dining team works hard to ensure that everyone enjoys tasty, nutritious meals prepared using only the freshest, quality ingredients.

Our pupils enjoy a tempting choice of meals on a daily basis, including hot main dishes, vegetarian selections, a range of cold meats, freshly made sandwiches and baguettes and a varied salad bar. Fresh fruit, yogurts and a traditional dessert are also available.

All our food is freshly prepared using ingredients sourced from selected and approved local producers and suppliers who deliver daily. Most of our vegetables, fruit, eggs, dairy, poultry and meat come from no more than 30 miles away, meaning we can literally trace each meal from ‘farm to fork’ as well as supporting local businesses.

Our seasonal menus are changed regularly, and we embrace the School Food’s Trust nutritional guidelines, actively encouraging pupils to eat nutritionally balanced meals. Our food contains no hydrogenated fats, salt, additives or undesirable preservatives.
We have our own in-house catering department which enables us to employ and train all our own chefs. We take great pride in our autonomy as it allows us to produce the type of creative, fresh and nutritious food that appeals to our international community.

We are proud to use produce from suppliers who observe a high standard of animal welfare.

This policy ensures no factory farming, lots of outdoor space and fresh air, encouragement of normal animal behaviour, no routine use of drugs, vaccines, no genetically modified feed or growth hormones and minimised stress in transport and slaughter.

Through tasty meals and fresh ingredients, we aim to make mealtimes at Shebbear College an enjoyable experience.
