Manage your ingredients, recipes and menus all in one place
Set your recipes free!
Add your recipes quickly and easily to SchoolGrid, or adapt recipes from our bank of 1000 provided recipes. We spend a day with you on site to assist, but it is really easy to use.
At the click of a button, all of the recipe and allergy data can be shared with kitchen staff and parents.
Plan cost effective, Popular Menus
Use star ratings to gauge dish popularity, ensuring that menus hit the mark with pupils and parents, increasing uptake and reducing plate waste.
Use supplier data to get realtime indications of menu cost, to keep your service financially performant.
Link your recipe ingredients to supplier products!
We have a full database of supplier products, so you just have to click to indicate which ones you use in your recipes. Then we pull in all of the nutrition and allergy data for you, making this information available instantly to kitchens and parents.
The system then reacts to supplier changes automatically.
Allergies & Pupil Safety
We are really good at this stuff!
We started rolling out our allergy protection system before any similar systems existed in schools. We’ve been developing it for ten years now, and it is second to none.
Our system will not only inform parents, block incompatible orders, react to supplier changes and cancel dangerous orders retrospectively, it will also alert serving staff of all unsafe sides & desserts during service.
We Support Public Sector Catering
As part of our mission to support excellent public sector school catering, all local authorities, MATs and arms-length caterers can use our MenuGrid system completely free of charge.
We still provide excellent support – in person and on the phone. Give it a try!
FREE for Public Sector Catering.
A no-brainer for menu planners
Parents want direct access to information, and kitchens need tools in order to reduce waste.
“The allergen system is a big selling point for us. As a school we are very cautious that a lot of children have different needs and a lot of allergies. Parents uploading these direct to the system has been good for the school.”
Tonnianne Hewitte, Trust Finance Officer, Quest Trust
