At Withnell Fold School we encourage the children to eat and drink healthily and our school meals reflect this. We have a wide range of healthy options available to the children and they select their preferred choice from the half termly menus.
Dinner money is £11.75 per week (£2.35a day)
Please can you notify Mrs Unsworth immediately if you wish to make any changes to your child's meal pattern.
Our school dinners are operated by Lancashire County Council. We receive coloured menus which we send out,on a termly basis. We thought it may be useful to create a link to the relevant page of the LCC website should you wish to view the latest menu or find out more about them.
You will need to click on the 'COOK SERVERY MENU' link in the middle.
