Welcome to the SA School Canteen Network


Thursday 8th March, 7:30pm.

SASCN will be holding our AGM at Glenelg Primary School (Diagonal Rd, Glenelg East) 7:30pm 8/3/18.

We warmly welcome anyone interested in our organisation to attend this meeting.

We are always looking for new faces to join the committee and encourage anyone interested to contact our Secretary for more information. Contact details can be found at the bottom of this page.

Good luck!

After Christmas, New Year and the school holidays have flown by, we find ourselves recovering from some very hot weather and ready (hopefully) for the start of another school year.  SASCN would like to wish everyone the best for the return to work and trust your term goes smoothly. If you have any questions, big or small, please contact us through the link at the bottom of this page, through Facebook or you can also contact one of the committee members directly.


We can help....

The SASCN committee consists of Canteen managers and staff who volunteer their time to support SA school canteens.  We are able to offer our services ranging from doing a menu assessment to visiting your school and completing a full canteen review with feedback and a written report.  If you would like any further information regarding this, please contact us through the link at the bottom of this page.

Food Allergy Training

"All about Allergens" online training has been developed to help everyone working in food service.  The training will help you to be aware of the risks food allergies pose, help you identify and manage food allergens and provide help on how to respond to enquiries from customers with food allergies.

Visit www.foodallergytraining.org.au for access to free online training.

Introducing Mr Fraser Keegan

Fraser Keegan has recently commenced working in the Department for Education and Child Development on the Right Bite program, with responsibility for delivering the recently announced Pilot Program   (https://www.premier.sa.gov.au/index.php/sa-priorities/right-bite) which will see free fresh fruit and vegetables being delivered to 10 schools involved in the trial. Healthy produce will be used in a variety of contexts in the school, including in the classroom and canteen, and will inform improved ways to support children to eat healthily at school. Fraser comes most recently from the State Manager role of the Obesity Prevention and Lifestyle (OPAL) Program and will be working closely with SA Health to update the Right Bite Policy and associated resources.
