ASM food service is provided by Scolarest. A full hot-lunch program is prepared on site in ASM’s kitchen. In addition, a ‘cafeteria’ provides hot and cold sandwiches, coffee, and a range of fruit and healthy snacks.
Scolarest maintains 16 staff members dedicated to ASM. From Miguel, the chef to Yoli who serves coffees and sandwiches, the cafeteria staff know ASM students by name. They are part of our ASM family.
Scolarest has committed to providing an executive chef to work with the ASM cafeteria chef for the last two years to increase the level of choice, to include more vegetarian options, and to develop new recipes.
The school lunch menu is based on the fundamentals of a Mediterranean diet and is designed by experienced dieticians in accordance with NAOS recommendations. The menu has been adapted to meet ASM’s specific context. These adaptations include special menus which feature ingredients and recipes from different cultures and regions. Special menus are available for allergies and specific cultural requirements. Scolarest has committed to sourcing best quality ingredients from local suppliers of ecological certified food, fair trade certified products.
At ASM we are committed to health and wellness. In the cafeteria this has been achieved by eliminating high sugar drinks and snacks, reducing the amount of fried foods, increasing the options for healthy eating.
