Canteen Meeting with Epicure Catering

It’s a new canteen and it’s a new catering company! And we are confident that our community is curious to find out more…

Please join us for a Community Meeting on Monday October 1 at 8.15 in the Community Room (B7) where you will hear a 30 minute presentation by Epicure and get a chance to try for yourself some of the food that they prepare for our Deli and Catering ranges. 

There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers and our Head of School, Jane McGee and our Director of Finance and Operations, Misty Shipley, will also be there to answer questions and give some feedback from our student focus groups as well as outlining how the community can collaborate with Epicure with constructive feedback.

Finding a time that is suitable for all parents is very difficult, we are trying our best to find ways for everyone to contribute to the conversation. ES Parents who wish to attend the meeting can bring their school-aged children and UNIS will make arrangements to supervise the students during the meeting.

In order for the meeting to be a informative as possible, please let us know any hot topics that you would like to hear about from Epicure by leaving a comment below on this post.

The meeting will be recorded and shared with the community via Tin Tuc for those that cannot make it.
