FOOD SERVICES

Nourishment for growing minds and bodies

The ISB Culinarium (cafeteria) is run by Scolarest, a division of the Compass Group, which specialises in providing catering services to schools. The Scolarest team provides healthy, nutritious meals which encourage children to eat a balanced diet. Scolarest offers a special menu for ISB which is more diverse and cosmopolitan to reflect our international student body.

With the Eat, Learn, Live (ELL) nutrition programme (view the brochure), Scolarest offers an interesting variety of seasonal meals and now even more: the ELL menus are arranged with the expert support of the Swiss Society for Nutrition (SSN), which is the national organisation for matters concerning nutrition both for the general population and for those involved with nutrition professionally.

The weekly menu and further information is available online to ISB Members.
