The Snack Shack
Students are also able to bring in their own packed lunch to eat inside or outside.
The Catering department are an in house team, giving us control of what is served to our students. 90% of our products on sale are made fresh onsite.
Acorn’s Executive Chef Manager, Joel Deverill, works closely with local suppliers to find the best ingredients at the best price to ensure our students are being served high quality food.
We are working on the catering department becoming plastic free. We so far have managed to remove all plastic cutlery and replaced them with wooden, as well as some of our plastic drinks bottles being replaced with recyclable cartons.
We feel as a school that we should be doing our part for the environment and sharing that knowledge with the students.
