Each of Qingpu and Yangpu campuses has a school canteen.
These canteens offer daily meals cooked on site and on the day by school’s catering service provider, Chartwells.
Kindergarten children have lunch in a dedicated area, with the help of childminders and volunteer parents. They benefit from a full menu specially composed for toddlers (PS to GS), as well as a snack served in the morning of every Wednesday and Friday.
Elementary school students have lunch together via a dedicated lunch serving line: “Eat Global”, which offers a healthy and balanced menu. Volunteer parents are present on site to help the children serve themselves (or have a refill) and stay there in case of problems. The “Eat Global” line is reserved for elementary school students (CP to CM2) as well as those in Grade 1 of Deutsche Schule. The main dish (only) of Eat Global is also accessible to other students, if the quantity is sufficient.

In each campus, five serving lines offer a choice of balanced menus to all middle and high school students every day.
Each year, a Franco-German Canteen Committee is set up to assess and improve the service provided. It is convened twice per school year.
Included in the tuition fees, the catering costs amount to 31 RMB per day in elementary and secondary school and 29 RMB per day in kindergarten. The school does not make any profit from the catering service.
I wash and disinfect my hands. If I can’t do it, I ask an adult to help me.
I wear my mask and pass the temperature control. In the line, I respect social distancing.
I go directly to the table.
I can sit with my friends, but I respect social distancing, and stay behind the separators.
I leave the canteen through the designated exits.
Roger Maurer Bio
Chef Yangpu Campus
“Trained in French cuisine and the art of cooking in German-speaking countries, I soon explored my passion for flavorful Mediterranean culinary skills after my parents left Switzerland and settled in Greece. My cooking style is influenced by my love for down-to-earth traditional Central European food and Mediterranean cuisine, with a touch of fusion. I believe that chefs are truly great creators who bring happiness through the preparation of delicious, tasty food.”

The E-POS system is the “Compass” application (WeChat Mini Program) which is made available since 2021 by the catering service provider Chartwells, to all LFS parents, who can access this application by scanning a QR Code linked to each student and sent to you by the service provider*. This allows you to have a quick and easy access through your WeChat account and discover all functions directly in the dashboard of the application. You can easily access the account information of your child, transactions, menu information, news, as well as presentation of dishes and reviews. You can recharge the account with your own WeChat wallet if needed.
For more information, you can check the user guide of this application on LFS website and in the application.
A parents’ committee is set up each year to inform and maintain dialogue between the family and the school, which manages the service.
