AiP clinches £400k school contracts in Coventry

Specialist education caterer, Alliance in Partnership (AiP) has secured more than £400k worth of contracts in four ‘cluster’ primary schools across Coventry.

AiP is now providing school meals at Manor Park Primary School, Stivichall Primary School, Finham Primary School and Howes Community Primary School which were previously managed by Coventry Council Catering.

The Council has pulled out of school meals provision enabling schools across the city to choose to swap to another local authority school meals service or to outsource to contract caterers.

Gold Food for Life accredited, AiP is offering all schools increased freshly made, locally sourced food as well as more home-made dishes. Menus have seen an increased number of meal choices, with students being able to instantly rate their lunches that day with ‘Rate my Meal Boards’ in each dining area.

As well as improved meals, AiP will be offering a number of sampling sessions for parents at inset days and parents evenings. AiP staff will also be supporting schools with their gardening clubs to help demonstrate the importance of the farm to table chain to children.
