Harlands School Lunches

Healthy & nutritious packed lunches for Harlands pupils

We are very proud to have been selected as the chosen provider of school lunches to Harlands Primary Academy pupils from September 2019.  Offering this service in partnership with the school, we share the collective aim of ensuring every child receives a lunch that they love, that is good for them and most importantly – that they eat!

At Pioneer, we understand the significance of providing a child with a lunch.  We know that meals and mealtimes are a very important part of family life, and that lunch is an important part of the school day.  Our skilled catering team work from bespoke industrial kitchens and, over the last 7 years, have provided more than 400,000 healthy & nutritious meals to children in our care.  The benefit of this experience is that we understand and mirror your expectation of high quality school lunches, that your child will enjoy.
