LACA HOUSE OF COMMONSUsing meals transported using Rieber’s Thermoport insulated food transport containers, some 60 Members of the House of Commons plus a number of Peers recently sampled the quality of food currently served in school restaurants across England and Wales.

The lunch took place on 26th June 2013 as part of the build-up to the launch of this year’s National School Meals Week (NSMW) 2013. Many willing supporters from across the school catering industry pulled together to create an impressive event overcoming many logistical issues.

Food was freshly prepared in school kitchens throughout London, packed into LACA HOUSE OF COMMONS 3the Thermoports and transported to the House of Commons by van.

“Unfortunately, however, it is still the case that many people base their current perceptions on historical memories and addressing this issue is key to the future success of the school food industry,” says LACA.

“By encouraging MP’s to attend the event at the House of Commons, they could see first-hand just how great school food is and why they should support LACA’s ambitions for this year’s NSMW campaign for :- Every pupil in England and Wales to have access to a FREE school lunch during the week!”

The Menu:

  • English Lamb Tagine with Roast Vegetable Cous Cous
  • Vegetable Curry with Boiled Rice
  • Chocolate and Beetroot Sponge with Custard
  • Carrot Cake
  • A Selection of Cold Drinks
