September 2017 – A Fresh New Start!

Independent Catering are delighted to have been appointed as the catering partners at The Charles Dickens School.

As a local Kent based company our philosophy is based on fresh, locally procured food. Our fresh food credentials are underpinned by the award of the Gold Standard Catering mark by the Soil Association which means we meet the highest standards of food provenance. Our menus include more ethically sourced and organic meat and vegetables which means healthier options for our customers.

We will provide a range of main meals for the students which we know they love alongside the introduction of our exciting street food, deli options and grab and go products – all delivering great food at a great price. The main meal will remain at £2.20 for a main meal and dessert delivering great value.

There are so many additional exciting new food choices for our customers to look forward to.

  • Freshly made sandwiches and baguettes
  • New salad bar with a choice of delicious freshly made salads
  • Home baked goodies
  • Grab and go snacks
  • Shaker Salad Pots with prawn cocktail, chicken tikka with raita and a Caesars salad
  • Chilled drinks

In October the school will take delivery of an exciting new external service point – The FOOD POD. The Pod will create another service point to ease lunchtime queues, selling a range of hot and cold healthy snacks and chilled drinks

Fresh food and the eating experience is very important to the school and we all recognise the benefits of fresh food to both learning and concentration. This is such an exciting time for the school so please come and try out the new menus in September.
