Free to enter for catering managers, chefs, kitchen teams and contract caterers working in the residential care sector, the Care Home Catering Awards seek to recognise and reward best practice in delivering person-centred nutritional care.
The Awards are divided into four categories: Independent Care Home Caterer of the Year, Group Care Home Caterer of the Year, Catering Team of the Year and The Above & Beyond Special Award.
Care home caterers are the unsung heroes of the care sector, yet the importance of good nutrition and hydration cannot be underestimated and the services provided by kitchen teams day in, day out are vital to residents’ health and wellbeing.
Do your residents benefit from exceptional quality, nutritionally balanced meals and snacks, appetisingly presented and tailored to individual needs and preferences? Are catering staff within your organisation supported to develop their careers through training and qualifications? Do you engage with families, friends and the local community to make mealtimes an enjoyable social occasion? These are just some of the things the judges will be looking for…
So, if you think you or your team deserve to be recognised, now’s your chance: entering the awards is completely free of charge, and you can enter as many categories as you see fit.
