Rory’s Lunches

Pedare uses Rory’s School Lunches to operate and supply the canteen with food. At both Pedare and Rory’s, we believe all students should have access to healthy nutritious food to support their growth and learning. That is why Pedare has an agreement with Rory’s who employ a team of qualified chefs to prepare fresh, delicious and healthy meals.

Because the food is delivered daily, it is not necessary to use harmful preservatives to extend its shelf life. The food is cooked the traditional way, taking advantage of fresh herbs and spices to boost the flavour of the food. Some students can be fussy about eating healthy foods, so Rory’s incorporate them into their dishes, such as the Napolitana sauce, packed full of veggies and is so delicious students will not notice.

Ready, Set, Go!

Rory’s School Lunches menu complies with the South Australian government’s Right Bite Easy Guide to Food and Drink. It’s a traffic light system:

Green – Green foods can be eaten every day. They include foods that have lean cuts of meat, low fat cheeses or dressings, and are lower in saturated fat and sodium.

Amber – Amber foods are more processed than green foods (they may contain higher levels of fat, sugar and sodium). Parents and students are encouraged to choose carefully from this selection. Amber products should not dominate your choices.

Red – Red foods are highly processed, energy dense and nutrient poor. Remember, red foods are an occasional food, so therefore limit your intake and don’t eat them every day.
