Food & Diet

You'll find great food choices at Plumpton College

It’s a great place to meet friends, grab a coffee or light snack over a quick break, enjoy a full hot meal on cold winter days, or grab and go options to takeaway and enjoy either on the dining room terrace or lawns in the summer. 

We are continuously reviewing and improving our offer in partnership with our students. Through regular forums, students give feedback on the options available. Each day there is a range of hot and cold options, sandwiches, pastries and paninis, a pasta bar and main meal options, over half of which are plant-based. We promote a balanced diet for students, with a great selection of freshly prepared salad and deli items and seasonal vegetables to accompany each meal. 

We enjoy catering for event nights or themed menu nights for our resident students. 

The Potting Shed, our snack bar is open throughout the year, Monday to Friday, serving a range of hot and cold options, sandwiches, pastries and paninis to ensure no matter where students are based on campus, there’s an excellent range easily accessible. 

In 2022, a new café will be available for our adult learners and visitors to campus in the Agri-Food Centre, a new facility for rural businesses to meet and connect. 

Students based at One Garden Brighton, Stanmer Campus can take advantage of One market based within the campus walls, which has a range of Grab and Go foods Hot and Cold Drinks and a student kitchen available to prepare items brought from home to suit a range of needs. 

Reducing food waste

The college has set out its roadmap to carbon zero, and as part of this, the catering team are continuously working to lower food wastage. All outlets only use recyclable cups and food packaging for takeaway items, and recycling bins separate waste to be recycled. 

Support with meal costs

The college has an excellent range of bursaries available to help with the cost of meals at college. Students can also utilise their TOTUM discount cards at One Garden Brighton for 15% off all items.
