The Ministry of Education is reopening the Panel Model for Ka Ora, Ka Ako | School Lunches Programme (the Programme) to allow capable lunch suppliers to gain admittance to the Panel. Capable suppliers are now invited to submit a proposal for the provision of delivering nutritious and healthy lunch services to participating schools and kura located across all regions. In addition to this, capable suppliers are invited to express their interest to support any of the 99 additional schools and kura invited to participate in the Programme from Term 3, 2021.

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 7 June 2021 via Zoom Meeting Software. More detail on the exact dates and times will be published on GETS.
