School Lunches

Magdalen School Meals are freshly prepared on the premises by our experienced caterers. Our menus are constantly updated and are freshly prepared using only the highest quality ingredients, wherever possible these are sourced from local suppliers; the fruit and vegetables we serve are seasonal and locally grown, our meat is supplied by Hanson’s Butchers, Wainfleet.

Our aim is to produce healthy, colourful and tasty dishes that are well accepted by children. A range of tasty new dishes and healthy traditional meals are provided by our friendly staff.
