Our Healthy and Nutritious Food

Our food policy

We constantly work in partnership with our suppliers to provide quality locally sourced produce including organic, seasonal fruit and vegetables, British Farm Assured meat also from the surrounding areas, freshly baked bread from the bakery nearby and locally grown salads. We also use in our cooking, low sodium salt and unsaturated fats including an extended rapeseed oil which has omega 3, 6 and 9, vitamin E, essential fatty acids for heart health and brain function, All fish sourced is MSC-certified from sustainable stocks. Our baked beans are low in salt and sugar and we only use free range eggs in our products.

We also offer daily Halal meat options.

We have FAIRTRADE status and raise awareness with various projects throughout the year.

For our students we help to develop food awareness initiatives with competitions, food sampling, visits to the kitchen and preparation areas, menu planning and cookery demonstrations.

In the coffee shop we sell breakfast items, hot and cold beverages and fresh fruit from 7.45am until 8.40am.

Homemade sandwiches; wraps, filled rolls and flat breads can be purchased at lunchtime along with a variety of fresh fruit desserts yoghurts, biscuits and beverages. We also sell a variety of FAIRTRADE products.

Looking after the environment

We have sourced good quality produce from local suppliers keeping our food miles to a minimum. Our bottled water comes from a source just outside Cambridge and our staple supplies are delivered from a depot in Northampton. Our bread product packaging is 100% biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. Our meat and vegetable supplies are delivered in reusable baskets and all our waste cardboard is recycled.
