Brain Food for Future
Generations.

A place of learning is sacred. As providers within
these spaces, we take our responsibility for the
success of learning very seriously.

  • Value: for us, both value for money and client cost is critical.

How Does Fedics Class Nourish Success?

With 50 years of experience in educational catering, Fedics Class has learned the cardinal lessons that make every journey of learning a success. We build this knowledge into every meal and contract.

Good food is good health

On average, a learner will eat 4000 school meals in the years between playschool and the 12th Grade. As custodians of the future, we see it as our role to make sure that these meals taste good and provide the best nutrition.

Lifetime eating habits form early.

Research shows that early childhood nutritional education helps learners develop good eating habits and health, which stays with them throughout their adult lives. This in turn has a positive ripple effect on society’s health at large.

Good nutrition enables development.

A young person’s body and brain development are linked to the quality of nutrition they receive. Once this development has taken place it can’t be undone, so it’s critical to get it right, first time, every time.

Progressive schools are respected.

Schools that embrace and shape trends in education are better known and respected. We understand the important role we play in the positive “branding” of our clients’ schools.

Our Education Segment Products:
