At City Catering we believe that receiving great quality food, served with kindness and care, is a right and not a privilege.
Everyone deserves the best possible nourishment. To honour that belief, we place a significant focus on making a tangible difference in people’s lives through local nutritional projects.
As a not-for-profit, any surplus or grant funding that we generate enables us to do more to support the local community. Our focus is set squarely on supporting holiday food provision across the region, to ensure that less families and their children are impacted by food poverty during the school holidays.
Fighting Food Poverty in Southampton
The school holidays push many families into food poverty and insecurity. Children from low-income families are often entitled to Free School Meals during term time, yet there is currently no such provision during the holidays. City Catering is committed to filling this gap by feeding families who may otherwise go hungry.

From a Lunch Crowd club in partnership with Make Lunch
Me and my children attend the Make Lunch club and we love it! My youngest is a very fussy eater and yet he tries everything there. He has found a new love for the cheesy tomato pasta bake! Am very pleased we have the recipe to be able to make it at home! We always look forward to going to Make Lunch.
From a Lunch Crowd club in partnership with Coach 4 U Sports
A great big thank you to Coach 4 U Sports and Mansbridge Primary School for the free sports session taking place this week with free lunches provided by City Catering Southampton, who then also gave us this free bag of ingredients and recipe for the lovely meal I have just cooked for us all.
