Meals in day-care centres, pre-primary education, basic education and upper secondary schools

Meals in day-care centres and schools are organised in all day-care centres, comprehensive schools and upper secondary schools. The City of Lappeenranta purchases the school catering services from Saimaan Tukipalvelut Oy. In day-care centres, children are also served breakfast and a snack in addition to lunch. In some schools, it is possible to buy snacks from Saimaan Tukipalvelut Oy. Upper secondary school students are entitled to free school meals on the days when their education takes place at school.


For more information on meals in day-care centres and schools, contact Saimaan Tukipalvelut Oy. You will find menus and contact information on their website, among other things. Special diets are taken into account on health grounds according to individual needs as per the national allergy programme. If your child has a special diet, fill in the special diet form in the announcements section of the Wilma service and submit it to the staff in charge of food services at the daycare centre or school.
