Nottingham Catering - Covid 19 Support

The current Covid-19 pandemic has caused major disruption in how schools operate safely. To ensure everyone within the school community is protected, we have needed to introduce many new and different ways of working. Nottingham Catering has supported all schools by working in partnership, ensuring the best possible catering service is maintained.

As all schools are unique, the challenges faced have differed from school to school, therefore the support given by Nottingham Catering has been specifically tailored to each individual school. Here, at Nottingham Catering, we are aware that during this time there will be unavoidable changes to the service provided in school: menu changes at short notice, alternative meal choices and eating in a different setting within school. We thank you for your continued support and understanding during this period. We are continuing to work hard to ensure that all pupils receive a healthy and nutritious meal every day, including those with special dietary requirements.

For any catering contract support needs, please contact us at

Free School Meal Vouchers

Nottingham Catering has operated a FSM voucher scheme since the start of lockdown #1 in March 2020 to support schools forced to close, except for vulnerable and key worker children, due to Covid-19. This digital voucher scheme is still available to all contracted schools where a meal or packed lunch option cannot be provided. If you are a school or parent you will find helpful information below on this scheme.

Non Contracted Schools - Information for Head Teachers

If your school requires assistance in dealing with the impact of Covid-19 on your catering service and requires vouchers, please contact us at and we will discuss your requirements and assist you where possible and subject to availability.
