Deli(very) worked in collaboration with the School of Healthcare and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS trust in order to help showcase unsung heroes of the First World War in an event partnering history with healthcare this week.

Head of Food Development, Simon Wood, created a delicious lunch menu inspired by the early 20th Century, serving up a traditional Beef Brisket with Seasonal Root Vegetables and Dumplings and a Steamed Jam Sponge.

Guests were also treated to an Edwardian Afternoon Tea, including a selection of sandwiches, succulent mini pork and chestnut sausage rolls and sweet items including fruit tarts, Victoria sandwich cake, rich fruit cake and scones with Jam & cream. Provided by the GFAL team, the lunch was served on traditional metal blue and white plates and the afternoon tea on fine china for added authenticity.

Del(very) are pleased to collaborate with departments and help come up with innovative ideas. For Further information please contact Anthony Lowe at

We are proud to announce we have partnered with Too Good To Go, the innovative new app and social enterprise that aims to put an end to food waste in the hospitality industry. Following in the footsteps of some key players in catering across Leeds, such as Yo Sushi and Rola Wala.

The partnership sees us introduce the Too Good To Go app in two of our outlets, The Business School and The Refectory. This will help reduce food waste on campus at the university, by providing a platform to show what surplus food is available to students and staff at a cheaper cost before it goes out of date.

You can place an order using the app and collect your food before closing time. Food offering ranges from salads, sandwiches, jacket potatoes and daily hot specials. In the Business School Café you can pick up your order anytime between 2.30pm-2.40pm and in The Refectory you can collect your order between 7pm-7.15pm.

“We are so pleased to be able to work alongside Too Good To Go on such a great initiative. At Leeds, sustainability is at the forefront of what we do, and food waste pays a huge part in this for us as a Catering service. This partnership is a step forward in reducing food waste across campus, whilst creating an innovative platform to offer staff and students a way to access quality food at a reduced price. We are very excited to launch in The Refectory” – Julie Tong, Head of Retail Catering at GFAL.

We will have up to 15 meals a day available on campus, ranging from salads, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, daily hot specials and many more other menu items.
