Healthy, safely prepared meals must be provided to students throughout their stay.
Every morning the host family is to provide a breakfast; typically, this consisting of cereal, toast and a drink.
During the week, a packed lunch should be offered. Some lunchtimes (weather permitting!) there is a barbeque at school which students prefer. Food can also be purchased by students from The Mill in Bicclescombe Park and drinks and snacks from the school vending machines. It is important to ask the student if they would like a lunch provided or not – to avoid unnecessary waste. Students must NOT go home for lunch.
Every evening, a sufficient, well-balanced meal must be provided and served at 6pm(ish). This is to allow enough time for the student to be ready for their evening activity program.
Some students have specific dietary needs and allergies. Hosts can also decide if they wish to cater for these or not. If so, an extra payment is received to compensate for needing to buy special food/ingredients.
