What We Do
The Lunch Bag is a healthy school lunch delivery service, designed to empower children to make educated, healthy food choices, shedding the negative label of ‘Fussy Eaters’. Both children and guardians can only make lunch from what they have available to them – and very often this means the same lunch every day; with expensive shopping top-ups during the week.
We are setting a tradition for the future, where children can try different lunches every day without the repercussions of cost or food waste.
School lunches are made with breads fresh from the oven, produce fresh from suppliers – before you can even buy them in the shop. Our Lunch Bag packaging is 100% compostable, with all suppliers encouraged to provide compostable or recyclable products.
What’s more, because we make lunch for the whole school, we can’t be beaten on price – it’s simple economics!
Each lunch is individually made with love and care in our state-of-the-art, award winning, premises.
Ranked in the top 6% of Q marked companies in the country, we are also the first school lunch provider to gain ISO 22000:2015 recognition.

Additional snacks optional
Variety for cost!
Too often we parents buy ham and bread on a weekly shop and try make it last the week. For the same cost, why not give your child the opportunity of a wide variety every day, without the food waste? Your child can mix and match their favourite lunch items from one day to the next!

We take kids safety very seriously. Therefore, once we know that your child has an allergy, we will ensure that foodstuff unsuited to them is blocked from their menu. We also adapt the menu to ensure it reflects the school’s Healthy Eating & Allergy Policies.
By suppliers delivering straight to us, you’ll be saving on thousands of individual packets coming from your home!
As parents, we understand that most kids have their own little nuances. That’s why our app allows you to choose what’s right for your child. Each lunch is individually made to your child’s requirements- you can even choose how much butter you want! We encourage fussy eaters to try food without wasted food & money in the home!
Our suppliers send us the exact amount of produce fresh everyday- reducing food waste and packaging in the home. Whats more, we use fully compostable bags, utensils and Lunch Bag products!
What The People Say
We were delighted with the additional resources, from nutrition talks to new sports equipment. The service has only added to the school community.
From an administrative point of view, there is very little work needed from the school. The Lunch Bag take care of all customer queries. The staff menu & complimentary catering is a great incentive too.
As a school, we felt it was important to implement a more structured approach to a healthy eating policy. The Lunch Bag provides the opportunity for a wide varied diet, without additional financial strain to the family. To be honest, I thought there would be peer pressure amongst the children, but this did not turn out to be the case at all. Those who like it, like it, those who prefer home lunches stick with them. It’s turned out really well.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, as I felt I was the only one who could make lunch good enough for my child. However, I had nothing to worry about. The food is top quality and there are no rows over what he’s eating. In fact, he’s trying more foods now than he ever did for me.
It’s great not having to worry about what to buy for lunch. No more forgetting lunch or trying to fit a big lunch box into an already heavy bag. And we are throwing out a lot less food at home, which helps with the bin bill.
Congratulations St Brigids Moate – Winners of our trip to Explorium!
