Welcome to express café

Lancashire County Catering Services take over the Catering Contract at LSA Technology & Performing Arts College on 1st April 2016.

LCCS are committed to promoting a varied selection of high quality, healthy balanced meals and snacks. Our aim is for students to enjoy good locally sourced food, which includes a full range of healthy options, compliant with food and nutrient standards in an attractive eating environment.

We offer a three choice nutritionally balanced menu daily, one choice always vegetarian along with, pasta and rice dishes, homemade soups and fresh bread, Jacket potatoes with a choice of hot and cold fillings, a full range of hot and cold sandwiches, salad bar, full range of vegetables, a wide range of homemade cakes and biscuits and a full range of healthy drinks all intended to provide a range of alternatives so as not to take away pupil choices. All our menus are planned to meet the food based standards for food in schools and are checked using a recognised programme to analyse nutrition. Whilst every effort is made to produce the published menu, please note that they may vary occasionally subject to availability.

We buy local produce to support local businesses and reduce food miles. 100% of our food suppliers are classed as local and 75% of our food purchases are produced by local businesses. Our service recognises the value and importance of sustainable and responsible food sourcing. Our aim is to positively influence the diet of our children and young people, and always consider where the food we put on the plates comes from and how it was produced.


We try to ensure that the prices are reasonable with lower price points for healthier products. Individuals are important and we respect cultural, medical and ethical dietary needs, so please feel free to let us know if your child has a special dietary requirement.

It is our policy to provide a menu for those pupils with medically diagnosed food allergies, food intolerances or a medical condition which affects eating arrangements.


From Monday 11/07/2016 the kitchens at LSA will be introducing a lunchtime pre-order system to speed up and improve the service to our customers.

A pre-order kiosk has been installed in the main dining room to allow students and staff to pre-order a range of hot and cold food for collection from a dedicated till point.

The advantage of using this system is that customers who have pre-arranged activities across the lunch period can order and collect their lunch without the need to queue.

Customers will be able to access the pre-order system by using their unique 4 digit pin number and the numbers from their date of birth up to 11.30am for collection the same day. When entering your date of birth it should entered in the following format with no spaces, DDMMYYYY. For example, if your date of birth was the 1st January 1990 then you would need to enter 01011990.

Once you have logged in for the first time you are able to change your password from your date of birth to a memorable word that contains 3 to 9 characters.

Initially, the products available for pre-ordering will be as follows:

  • A range of cold sandwiches and wraps together with associated meal deals
  • A range of hot Panini’s together with associated meal deals
  • Hot chicken sandwiches
  • Home baked goods
  • A full selection of cold drinks.

The range of products available will be updated on a daily basis with available choices.
