Who we are
YUM offers healthy, delicious lunches and snacks for everyone at school.
Our tuckshop concept provides eco- and health-conscious solutions in the school tuckshop environment.
We produce, cook and bake the majority of our goods in-house. We source fresh, local produce and ingredients, and this ensures both good quality and a major reduction on packaging and, that there are no preservatives, that everything is delicious and fresh; we make sure we sneak in healthy extras and go easy on the sugar!
At YUM we are passionate about being as earth-friendly as possible. We try to keep all packaging to a minimum wherever possible and that the packaging we use is bio-degradable and compostable. We believe this is achievable with good systems and suppliers in place. By producing most of our goods in-house, we ensure a major reduction on packaging – for example; homemade drinks such as iced teas, lemonades and fresh-pressed juices. We prefer not to stock canned or plastic bottled carbonated drinks. We strive to be completely waste-free, implementing composting and ensuring any daily leftovers are donated to a place of need. Currently, at The Grove Primary, we have a veggie and herb garden, a compost system and an earthworm warm; we rotate friendly waste into earthworm food, feeding the compost, feeding the plants, which in turn feeds our children. We plan to implement veggie gardens at all our schools to connect our food to the earth.

YUM’s Ordering Methods
We run our orders mostly through preorder systems and this ensures good planning as well as a mostly cashless environment.
Our entire menu (seasonal) is available to order on TupTuck daily under First Break, Second Break and After School. All orders need to be placed or cancelled before 08:00, daily. Orders can be planned ahead and be placed up to two weeks in advance.
The menu can be customised and certain items limited to certain periods of the day, for example, treats limited to After School only.
Ordered goods are individually packed for each order with a name tag.
Birthday cupcakes and treats can be ordered and delivered to the classroom! If we’re at your school, you can easily order your funfair at YUMonline.co.za/shop!
TERMLY ORDERS WITH KARRI
We use the Karri App for Termly Orders. Termly orders on Karri is perfect to ensure your child gets lunch and treats sorted at school; your selection is repeated on a weekly basis. The whole term, sorted!
