Dolce - Live Kitchen

 Dolce have been providing high quality healthy school meals since 1999.

Our main approach to producing the meals is to cook from fresh using raw ingredients.We like to make lunch times fun and enjoyable for children.We are always encouraging them to try new dishes and expand their taste for different food groups , textures and nutritional value

.As a company we provide Live -Kitchen, an award winning management system, enabling pupils to order their own lunch or choose at home with parents.The system will enable parents to view what the child has eaten and the chance to pay by direct debit.

Pre-Ordering

The children no longer pre-order using a paper based system. To save  teacher time and get the children more involved, pupils now select their chosen meal on a whiteboard touchscreen. Vegetarian options are clearly displayed on a green button.

This shows that you can select to pre-order for a particular day or by week.

Lunchtime

The children now select their name onscreen at the hotplate or are compiled on a printed list. Their meal choice is displayed to the cook, as well as there dietary needs. If a mismatch is detected the cook will advise of an alternative.

How will it work??

Once you have sent your form to us you can stop paying cash. Any amounts you have in debit or credit at the school will be reflected in your first direct debit.

Once every four weeks we will send you a statement, detailing which days your child ate school meals and what they ate;

You will only be charged for the days when your child actually ate.

Nine working days later your account will be debited for the stated amount, giving you plenty of time to rise any queries.
