Since inception in 1999, LACA has set out to inform, develop, represent and support its members through a range of initiatives and services. The Association became a Company Limited by Guarantee in 2009.
National School Meals Week (NSMW) has been running since 1993 and is organised by LACA (the Lead Association for Caterers in Education). The week encourages pupils in Nursery School and Primary Schools and students in Secondary Schools and colleges to have a healthy school meal that meets the nutrient standards laid down by the respective National Body or Government.
School Chef of the Year is the flagship event for school chefs to showcase their skills as they produce a two-course meal that would appeal to an 11-year old school pupil, with a maximum food cost of £1.50 per head, in just one and a half hours. Click here for information on the 2014 competition.
