There is now less than two weeks to enter the EDUcatering Excellence Awards!
The closing date for nominations is Friday 20th July, when the judges will then debate the entries and create a shortlist, all of whom will be invited as EDUcatering Magazine’s guests to the EDUcatering Excellence Awards Gala Dinner on 9th October.
The EDUcatering Excellence Awards are the only awards that recognise catering across the entire school sector, including local authority-run schools, contract caterers and self-managed sites, in state maintained schools, academies and independent schools.

Just email events organiser firstname.lastname@example.org.
