We have today received communication from Flintshire County Council of the following information:
As you are aware the cost of a school meal is reviewed annually to ensure we cover the costs of producing the menu, which has involved discussion with NEWydd Catering & Cleaning Limited who deliver this service. Following these discussions approval has been granted through the delegated powers guidance to apply an increase needed to account for the sharp rise in the cost of producing meals.
I am writing to inform you that we will be increasing the cost of both the infant and junior school meals to £2.50 per day effective from Monday 4th April 2022.
As always we have compared our prices with other authorities across Wales and this change ensures that Flintshire pupils continue to receive excellent value for money for a balanced, nutritious and tasty midday meal.
