CITYSERVE: Proudly feeding children and maintaining their schools for the benefit of local communities
We are the leading provider of non-education services to schools in Birmingham. Working in true mutual partnership is paramount and the work is purposeful because it has a positive impact on the children of Birmingham and the communities in which schools are located. As there are no shareholders or investors to please, any surplus generated is retained within our City and returned for benefit the children of Birmingham, making CITYSERVE a real alternative to the private sector.
What Can We Do For You
CITYKITCHEN – Made Fresh, feeds over 70,000 children within a 90 minute window every school day, and we buy around £12m worth of food every year!
We work closely with the School Food Plan and ensure all of our food is fresh and nutritious.
We don’t tell students what they should eat; we work with them to understand what they want to eat and then we ensure that it meets the required standards of school food compliance.
Our contracts are flexible – we aren’t tied to rigid corporate frameworks. We manage our partnerships on trust and strong relationships and can agree a unique way of working for each different customer. We can also help with infrastructure investment – turning tired canteens into vibrant dining areas.
CITYKITCHEN LIVE is in the heart of Birmingham and accessible to all of our customers. Our food creation and innovation centre is led by our Executive Development Chef and his creative team of foodies and nutritionists, and spearheads our aim of being the school food provider of choice.
We support education and help thousands of students learn about food provenance and provide gardening packs and funding to encourage sowing, nurturing, harvesting, preparation, cooking and ultimately eating home-grown produce.
