Secondary schools and colleges have an important role to play in the daily diet of their pupils. But they have limited space and time to feed a high number of pupils, so grab’n’go options have become the snack/lunch of choice, with sausage rolls and bacon baguettes often being the most popular. Catering for large volumes is also significant at the Brighton & Hove Albion football stadium with over 11,500 pies being sold on a match day.
Caterers are asked to prepare a recipe using the following criteria against which they will be scored:
- Include at least two types of veg
- Must be portable/grab’n’go (no plastic packaging used)
- Low cost to produce
- Easy to make and sell at volume
- Healthy (recipes will be run through a nutritional database for a score)
- Appealing to teens/young adults
- Recipe must be shareable with local and national networks
The competition will take place in the Community Kitchen in July 2019 and judging panel will includes secondary school / college pupils, catering professionals, a nutritionist, a football coach and a high-profile chef.
