Lunch Time

Healthy meals for busy birds !

The children have busy days and burn a lot of energy. They need good healthy sustenance to keep them going ! We have taken great care in selecting a local caterer: Revolution Food Sàrl based in nearby Geneva (website in French only). On 12th December 2017 our school and caterer jointly received the « Fourchette Verte – Ama Terra » label – a guarantee for healthy and balanced meals following strict guidelines.

All our meals are 100% vegetarian

  • They are certified by two quality food labels fourchette verte – ama terra (in French only) and GRTA (in English)
  • All the food products used are either organically farmed or contain no additives, colouring or preservatives
  • All their meals are guaranteed « homemade » and offer absolute freshness and quality thanks to their preparation shortly before delivery
  • Sourced from local farmers who respect the environment, by maintaining an ecological balance in their farming processes
  • Produced with an eco initiative to reduce waste in their own production and delivery processes
  • They received the 2017 award from the IDDEA Association in Geneva (Ideas for sustainable development for future enterprises
