School Meals - HC3S (Hampshire County Council Catering Services)

Our school caterers are award-winning caterers HC3S. It’s an explosion of exotic ingredients, it’s a veritable feast, yet it’s all about the taste. 


Street food is here to stay, especially in secondary schools as it’s easy to hold and perfect for socialising while eating. Of course, they also produce main dishes that you can eat with a knife and fork so there’s plenty of choice, and all of it’s freshly prepared.


From morning break, hot and healthy light bites, to nutritious lunches from the deli range too there’s something to suit everyone’s taste, and that’s without the extra theme days.


Their biometric system means it’s easy to speed through the queues so students don’t need to worry about carrying loose change.
