Aspens Services has won a five year catering contract at All Saints Academy in Dunstable, Bedfordshire.
The caterer was then given the opportunity to cook for the Archbishop of Canterbury the Most Revd and Rt Hon Dr Rowan Williams, when he officially opened the brand-new Academy building.
The new deal, expected to be worth around £500,000 in turnover, will see Aspens provide breakfast, morning break, lunchtime and hospitality catering.
Commenting on the honour of cooking for the Archbishop, Aspens Services managing partner John Roe said: "It was a privilege for our team to be involved in the celebrations for the opening of the new building, a major event for the Academy, and a particular honour to welcome the Archbishop.
"We are delighted to be chosen as the catering provider for All Saints and we are looking forward to delivering great-tasting, freshly-prepared food to all of our customers over many years to come".
The school currently has around 500 students but this number is expected to rise to 950.
