Contract caterer Chartwells has won a three-year deal with Kent Catholic Schools Partnership (KCSP) in Barham Court, Maidstone.
The contracts, worth a total of £12m, will see Chartwells provide catering services to 16 primary and five secondary schools under the KCSP group.
It will also cater for a non-trust primary school and a non-trust secondary school, which receive meals delivered from two schools in the trust.
KCSP was looking for a caterer that could "provide a range of nutritious meals to students and staff which meet and exceed government standards."
The contract period is for an initial three years with the option to extend for two further one-year periods.
Chartwells - which is part of the Compass Contract Services group - beat seven other companies to the deal.
