Healthy School Lunches – Milton

The Government has recently announced it will be expanding its programme to provide a free, healthy, daily school lunch to around 200,000 schools across the country.  All the Milton Schools have been invited to be part of the programme and we’re getting ready to take part in the Free and Healthy School Lunch Programme from next year.

The lunches will be available for all our students and will cater to the diet, health and cultural needs of our students. Right now, we are working with the Ministry of Education on the best way to meet our school’s needs.

If you’re a local business interested in becoming a pre-approved supplier of school lunches, you’ll need to sign-up for the Government Electronic Tender Service (GETS) at  All suppliers need to be able to meet New Zealand food safety standards and Ministry of Health nutritional guidelines.
