Microwaves service

After considering the use of microwaves in the school canteen, the Canteen Mixed Committee informs you that it is not possible to use it for the following reasons:

Security: To avoid burns — the temperature of food heated in the microwave can never be controlled 100 %; Possibility of cross-contamination in case of pupils with food allergies; Possible breakages of the tableware brought from the house.

Health: There are some basic food safety rules, using a microwave can be a practice that leads to food poisoning, as food has to be heated evenly and reach a temperature of 70 degrees, if cold areas are not eliminated the bacteria could survive. In children, minimal amounts are sufficient to trigger serious disorders. When a microwave is used, the food is handled and consequently, Ausolan canteen company and the School would be responsible. Neither Ausolan nor the School can take responsibility for the food brought from home and under what conditions the food has been kept until it has been heated in microwaves.

Solidary project: donations to NGO Sintigo

Since the beginning of the school year, the AMPA of the European School of Alicante (EEA) has been carrying out a solidarity project in collaboration with the NGO SINTIGO AYUDA and with the help of AUSOLAN, the company that runs the school canteen.

The daily surplus from the school canteen, around 3%, is donated to SINTIGO for distribution to people and families in need. Under normal conditions, we donate about 40 packages per day, often containing two portions.
