Published: Tuesday, 13th December 2016

Cityserve, Birmingham City Council’s award winning school meals service is proud to be appointed new catering partner for Ark Kings Academy & Ark Rose Primary Academy.

The new partnership starts in January 2017 and we are very excited to invigorate our exiting arrangements with Ark Rose and to welcome Ark Kings, whose students will enjoy a brand new selection of delicious meals developed by pupils and development chefs in our unique City Kitchen, the food development centre for schools based in the heart of Birmingham.
As a leading provider of non-education services to schools, Cityserve is the only not-for-profit school meals service contractor in Birmingham. Resources are reinvested in supporting the citizens of Birmingham health and well being of children and young people.
The team are passionate about providing every school student with healthy and nutritious meals, all of which will be freshly prepared using the finest locally sourced ingredients.  We’re particularly looking forward to relocating the Kings Academy dining facility into it’s brand new state of the art kitchen in the new building.
Brian Cape, Business & Service Development Manager at Cityserve said:
“We are delighted to be renewing our longstanding and valued relationship with Ark Rose Primary School and excited that we are starting a new partnership with Ark Kings Academy. As a team, we are working together to focus on healthy eating to ensure students achieve the best in educational attainment. We are really looking forward to developing some exciting menu concepts with the students.”
Ark Kings and Rose students will experience a brand new menu in the new vibrant and modern dining facility. There will be a wide range of delicious fresh food choices that provide great value for money. Our range will provide something for everyone including traditional homemade classics and culturally inspired meals. Students will get to try a variety of worldwide dishes including healthy burgers, assorted chicken wraps, vegetable curry and Caribbean jerk chicken with traditional rice and peas.
Roger Punton, Principal of Ark Kings Academy added:
“I am looking forward to the New Year with Cityserve providing the catering for the students of Ark Kings. Cityserve were chosen from a number of other caterers and students from Ark Kings were part of the interview panel, including tasting the food!
Our students, your children deserve the best quality, nutritious and varied food and I am confident Cityserve will work with us to achieve these aims.”
