School Meals

Important Update

Due to unforeseeable events, it is unfortunately not possible to prepare and serve the menu as planned. There will still be hot lunches for students and staff, but this will differ from the menu advertised below. We hope to be able to offer the menu again as planned from next week and thank you for your understanding.


ISB Lunch Programme

The School's Cafeteria reopened again on 14th April 2021, after almost a year in "Lockdown" when meals could only delivered to the classroom areas by the Kitchen staff. ELC and Elementary School students are once again provided with a full hot lunch service in the Cafeteria following hygiene rules (face masks must be worn unless food is being consumed) and keeping to strict Cohort seating in sections. Students are able to choose, each day, what they eat without pre-ordering. Secondary students may go down to the Cafeteria in Cohort Groups in their Lunchtime period and pick up hot food, or a snack alternative from the Kiosk to take back to their Cohort Area.

Our Kitchen Team from the Catering organisation Frische Pause e.V. offers fresh organic food for students and staff which is prepared and cooked on site. The meal includes a starter, salad, main course and dessert. Kiosk snacks are also available.

For students in Early Learning 1-3 and Grade 1  the cost of the meal is €3,40
For Elementary students grades 2-5 and Secondary school students the cost is €4,20 in cash and €4,00 with the blue lunch chip.


Payment and Registration

At ISB we use an electronic pay system called MensaMax for our Hot Lunch programme
Each student/staff taking part in the lunch system receives a blue lunch chip (costs 10€), onto which the user or parent, are able to make a payment via direct debit, bank transferal.
Our Kitchen Manager then deducts the cost of the food off the blue chip in the Mensamax system.
If you wish for your child to take part in the lunch system at ISB please use the Registration Form which you can complete, sign and send back to the Frische Pause e. V. office either via post or e-mail scan.
your child will be registered into the MensaMax system by the Frische Pause e. V. office staff.
After a couple of days you should receive an automatic e-mail giving you information on how to proceed with payment and the MensaMax system login details.
You can then pick up the blue lunch chip from the ISB Front Office.
Guten Appetit!
