The Ministry of Education would like to invite capable lunch suppliers to submit a proposal for delivering nutritious and healthy lunch services to school students across 181 schools and kura in the Healthy School Lunches Programme.
The schools are located in the following school regions: Tai Tokerau, Auckland, Waikato, Taranaki (including Whanganui and Manawatū), Wellington, Nelson (including Marlborough and West Coast), Canterbury and Otago/ Southland.

The Ministry of Education intends to establish two panels of pre-qualified lunch suppliers:
» Panel A: For suppliers applying to deliver up to 400 lunches daily
» Panel B: For supplier applying to deliver more than 400 lunches daily.

A ’panel’ of ‘suppliers’ (Panel) is a list of ‘suppliers’ who have been pre-approved by the Ministry and who have agreed to the terms and conditions for supply. Schools and kura can select a supplier from the panel to provide lunches for them.

There is no guarantee of work for panel suppliers, as the decision to appoint a supplier sits with individual schools and kura.

Supplier briefings on this opportunity will be held the week starting 5 October 2020 via Zoom Meeting Software. More detail on the exact dates and times will be published on GETS.
