Tony Mulgrew, the chef at Ravenscliffe High School in Halifax, won the #cookeditmyselfie competition organised by the Lead Association for CAtering in Education (LACA) as part of the 2016 National School Meals Week celebrations.

The competition saw LACA ask for tweets showing the best examples of school meals and offered a prize of £500’s worth of marketing resources or equipment for the winning entrant. A custom built waste station was chosen as the school’s prize.

The winning entrant, Tony Mulgrew, said: “I was totally surprised and absolutely delighted to be informed of the judge’s decision, given the quality of competition across the country and I would like to thank LACA for giving me and all my colleagues in the education catering industry the opportunity to show the quality of what we produce on a daily basis.”

LACA’s vice chair Timothy Blowers presented the prize to Tony and Ravenscliffe headteacher Martin Moorman in the school dining room on May 4th.

Blowers added: “Despite the quality of entries Tony has set the bar high for those entering the competition this year and I am sure we will see a fiercely fought contest.

“What it does highlight is the quality of school meals today and the skills and knowledge of education caterers. I can safely say school food has never been better, healthier or tastier.”
