St Joseph’s provides an efficient and effective school canteen to meet the needs of the school community. Open every day (Monday – Friday) for lunch and recess, the canteen provides a selection of fresh and healthy food choices at an affordable price. The diverse range of food offered and an efficient service are only possible due to our canteen supervisors, Mrs Pauline Ellicott and Mrs Trish McGregor as well as the voluntary help from parents, friends and relatives of students. Prices are kept to the bare minimum as the canteen is viewed as a service and does not make a profit.
St Joseph’s Canteen follows The Healthy Food Strategy that is being trailed in all NSW School Canteens. The Australian Dietary Guidelines and the national labelling system that provides Health Star Ratings (HSRs) on the front of packaged food and drinks forms the basis of the minimum food and drink criteria for the revised Healthy School Canteen Strategy.
There are only two food categories
