ParentGrid helps schools and caterers engage with parents
Ordering made simple
We are the original inventors of online school meal ordering, and our ordering systems remain second to none. Parents can view menus and full recipes, see supplier information and set up industry leading allergy protection controls.
Payments as they should be
As well as easy to use card payments, we also offer traditional cash management support for schools and monthly Direct Debit payments for parents. Direct Debit payments mean the parent can ‘set and forget’ – and will never have to top up or manage a balance ever again.
Allergies & Food Safety
When surveyed, 97% of our parents said that our allergy and food information systems gave them greater confidence in their school meals service.
Our parent systems increase uptake, block harmful allergens, and deliver vital information direct to parents, such as carb counts for diabetics.
Parent & Pupil Feedback
Great customer care starts with reliable and timely feedback. We collect star ratings for your dishes, get feedback from parents via on screen ‘micro surveys’ and pass on compliments for the kitchen team via our ‘Compliments to the Cook’ feature.
A bit of a 'no brainer' for Schools!
SchoolGrid helps the School Office reduce cash handling, simplify debt collection, dramatically reduce admin and keeps records automatically.
Parents - the key to increasing uptake
Give parents the best customer care experience, and all the information they need, and then watch your uptake increase.
“I’ve placed Morgan on school meals because of SchoolGrid. It’s easy to place orders in advance. Very happy with the service and information received by email.“

And Kids love it!
Research has shown that some children opt for packed lunches because they don’t enjoy the lunchtime experience at school. SchoolGrid assists with transforming the whole lunchtime experience.
We'd love to give you a Demonstration
If you try it, you will love it! If you are a public sector school or caterer and wish to see our system in action, we can arrange a visit to a nearby school who uses us already. Caterers may also wish to try a completely free pilot. This would be for up to 5 schools and six months, and we pick up all costs (including payment fees). Click below to book a demo and find out more.

I find it really useful as I am able to choose in advance exactly what I want them to eat for a whole term, the system works really well and I haven’t had any issues at all, they simply email me just before a Direct Debit payment is to be taken out. I would definitely recommend to schools.

Best in class...
Our staff have been working in school kitchens and school offices for the last 20 years. We understand the environment and create helpful tools which enhance the school day.
Our system looks great, is a pleasure to use, and is backed up by a genuine and friendly customer care team. Our customer focussed approach has helped us pick up a number of awards. This includes the 2022 LACA Award for “Supplier of the Year” in recognition of the ongoing support we provide to our clients and contribution to the industry.
“My child has severe allergies. Being able to view menus, check recipes and pre-order safe, appropriate meals for her gives us both peace of mind.”
