Listen to this article

Sodexo will provide catering services at Oasis Restore, the UK’s first purpose-built Secure School, following a new contract award from Oasis Community Learning.

In addition to serving a range of balanced and nutritious meals for students, Sodexo will also support the school’s aim to improve the life chances of young people (aged 12-18) in custody offering valuable culinary skills training to provide future employment opportunities.

“This partnership will play a crucial role in supporting our students’ personal and professional development.”

The school’s students will also benefit from lessons in budget management and using the culinary skills they learn, the opportunity to prepare meals independently in their living quarters.

Steve Hawkins, Sodexo’s Managing Director for Schools, says: “We are incredibly proud to extend our partnership with Oasis to serve the students at Oasis Restore. This is a unique opportunity to create a positive impact on the lives of young people who are in need of support. We believe that providing nutritious meals, culinary training and life skills education can make a real difference in their journey toward a brighter future.”

We have worked with them for over 13 years and their expertise in providing nutritious and appetising meals, combined with their commitment to culinary education, is completely aligned with our vision for Oasis Restore.

“This partnership will play a crucial role in supporting our students’ personal and professional development.”

Sodexo has been a school meals partner of Oasis Community Learning for over 13 years, currently serving breakfast, morning break and lunch to over 28,000 students across 49 schools.
