SchoolGrid Partners with LACA on Plant Based Recipe Book

SchoolGrid, who provide menu building and recipe management software, partnered up with LACA in producing an environmentally friendly plant-based recipe book.

SchoolGrid’s menu and recipe management system – MenuGrid – is simple to use, but very precise, and has been the system of choice for analysing the dishes presented in LACA’s ‘Plant Based Recipe Book’.  The system is now being offered on a ‘free for life’ basis to all local authority caterers, including in-person training and ongoing support.

Why plant based?  The demand for plant-based meals continues to increase as morepeople adopt a ‘flexitarian’ approach to eating with vegetarianism and veganism gaining in popularity too. 

These changes are being driven by concerns about health, the environment and animal welfare. School caterers have to respond to this demand from their customers while continuing to meet nutritional standards and provide a balanced diet that includes meat and dairy.

Carol Harwood, who managed this project on behalf of LACA said:  

“Working with the SchoolGrid team has been a revelation! Such a young team, so enthusiastic and professional – and for someone like me, who has been working with school food for many years, it is refreshing to see their energy.

The information provided by the analysis is precise, easy to follow and will be a useful tool for schools looking to create plant-based dishes for their pupils.”
