Every meal is portioned individually and sealed and labelled using food quality containers and/or packaging.

We deliver products in specially engineered thermal containers, which keep foods hot or cold, ensuring food safe temperatures are always met.

Both hot and cold foods are separated by division in their own designated container, labelled with the division number and number of items ordered. 

A sheet with individual student orders can also be generated.

There is no bulk sorting required by volunteers at the school unless otherwise requested. Every cold container comes packed with everything a student needs to eat their lunch including forks, napkins, condiments etc.

What is FUEL Catering's nut policy?

Our kitchen is a Nut Free facility and our recipes are all Nut Free!

Please note: We cannot guarantee that any food ingredients from an outside source have not been exposed to nuts. Furthermore we literally leave the food in the hands of volunteers, teachers, lunchtime monitors, students, etc., who might unknowingly have been exposed to nuts beforehand. Because of this, we recommend students with mild to severe allergies not order.
