School Meal Prices

“What was the price of a school meal for each of the last five academic years? If possible, could this be broken down into primary and secondary schools.”

Devon schools have the option to procure meals from Devon Norse, deliver schools meals ‘in house’ or use an alternative catering company.

Devon County Council (DCC) only has access to data for those schools that procure meals from Devon Norse and PFI schools.
