Our fantastic school catering teams are currently providing delicious packed lunches for children and young people in East Lothian.

These are delivered daily by our catering teams to classrooms in each school. 

The packed lunches, which offer a choice of two filling options, are available to those eligible for free school meals as well as those who wish to purchase and pre order via SchoolPay.

Find out more about eligibility for and how to apply for free school meals.

In line with council procedures, which reflect increases in costs including inflation, the price of school meals has increased this term by 5p – taking the cost to £2.10 in primary schools and £2.35 in secondary schools. 

Only packed lunches are currently being offered in all our schools at this time but the price increase will also apply to hot meals when we are able to resume these. 

We will provide a further update on school catering options in due course.
