Our schools catering is incredibly easy and free to set up and it is all managed behind the scenes by Crab Apple Catering
We are primarily motivated to achieve 100% clean plates, our knowledge and experience rely on feedback from children, parents, and school lunchtime assistants.
We have designed and created our own ‘easy to use’ school meal ordering software with active customer support
Low Food Milage
All of our food is freshly prepared in our HQ in Swanage first thing in the morning and delivered at lunchtime to our local schools.
Fresh As It gets
From our oven to your plate within 35 minutes. All of our tasty school meals are as fresh as it gets.
