Easington Academy food/cookery

Lunch menus and free school meals

At Easington Academy we work hard to provide nutritious healthy food for our students. Our menus use fresh, regional produce and where possible, quality assured meat and fish from sustainable sources.

Children who stay for lunch benefit from eating with others while relaxing with their friends. Having school lunches helps young people develop the confidence to make appropriate menu choices and tastes for different foods.
