There’s No Such Thing as a Free Lunch

The Problem

When a school works with a consultancy to help outsource their catering service then, of course, there’s a fee involved.

Worryingly, there have been reports from schools that consultants aren’t transparent in how they are earning their fee and how much schools are being charged. In some cases, consultancies have been disguising their fee so they are seen to offer their services for free, however the school actually ends up paying more, without realising.

For any consultant to suggest that a school won’t have to pay for their service is simply misleading: there is no such thing as a free lunch!
