Services for schools and local authorities

Catering Service (HC3S)

“We used to cater ourselves, but when our catering fell over HC3S came to the rescue. The manager we have here is fantastic.”


We provide a range of high quality catering services across the whole school day for pupils, staff and community users. We ensure our menus meet the government's nutritional guidelines, and to help us comply with these guidelines, we use a dietician based at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Winchester and also a nutritional computer package to assist us when planning our menus.
