Schools contract template
Contracts, tenders and food service agreements with suppliers
Schools may have contracts or lease agreements with canteen or food service providers, caterers, and/or vending machine suppliers.
Including a requirement for suppliers to provide and promote healthy foods and drinks in leases and contracts will:
- help make your efforts in supporting healthy eating long term and embedded into your organisation’s procedures
- help ensure food service providers in your organisation are committed to health and wellbeing
- support food service providers wanting to make healthy changes
- demonstrate your leadership and commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles.
This template is an example of how you can include the Victorian School Canteens and Other School Food Services Policy in tenders, contracts and leases with food service providers.
