It is great to see so many of MGJ children enjoying a nutritious hot meal that fills them up and gives them an energy boost for their afternoon lessons. The small amount of wasted food is a tribute to the catering teams wonderful homemade food. The food at MGJ is prepared fresh every day and represents incredible value for money. We are very proud of the standard of food which we provide for our school community and the way in which we prepare it. Thank you for your support.
