As the new teaching and support staff arrive for their first day of induction for Huili School Hangzhou and Wellington College International Hangzhou, the need therefore arises to ensure they are well fed and provided with a healthy diet.
As a result, our carefully selected catering vendor, Sodexo, has settled in to begin the monumental task of feeding all staff (and once classes commence) pupils as well. After two days of trial operations, the staff canteen officially opens for service today!
Once classes in Huili School Hangzhou commence on August 30th, and Wellington College International Hangzhou on September 3rd, all pupils and staff will eat in the canteen, except for pupils at Huili Nursery Hangzhou, who will enjoy their lunch at their dedicated canteen located in the Nursery building.
Nutrition and Safety
Food safety is the top priority for Sodexo, who strictly control the quality of all foods served. All of their vehicles are equipped with GPS to control transportation times and ensure that food is delivered fresh and ready to be cooked.
The menu is specially designed to promote a balanced and healthy diet, and the canteen will provide three types of nutritionally-balanced set meals every day. We commit to providing pupils with a safe and secure campus that is nut-free, free of trans fats and MSG.
Yin Chunhao, the Onsite Manager, has 5 years overseas management experience and 10 years domestic management experience. He has successively participated in the opening and operational stage of many international schools.
Wang Yaozhou, the School Chef with 24 years catering experience, is skilled at both Chinese and Western food. Together with their teams, we are confident that our catering services will provide both pupils and staff with a healthy, balanced diet to promote their overall well being.
For the pupils’ convenience, each child will be provided with a canteen card that will be used to purchase meals. The cards can be topped-up with funds, and the top-up service will be available during the pupil Orientation Days from August 20th to 23rd and beyond. In the future, parents can top-up their cards in the school cafeteria or online via the Sodexo WeChat Account. In addition, parents can monitor their child’s consumption through this WeChat Account.
As the official school opening approaches, we are proud that all school services are in place and ready for our families. To our pupils we ask, what will you choose for your very first meal in your new school?
