Catering at our Kindergartens

On each operating day for those families who participate in the meal service programme, the GFB Catering GmbH provides food and beverages to the children of the Leipzig International Kindergarten, and the Leipzig Gourmet Kids GmbH provides food and beverages to our Käferhaus Kindergarten. It is very important to us that due to the short delivery time of the meals, the time from preparing the food to serving it on the plates only takes one hour. The use of seasonal and regional products is also of great importance.


  • Nursery 1 and 2 children will be offered a meal plan including both breakfast and lunch.
  • Early Years children may choose a lunch-only meal plan (breakfast is provided by parents).
    Special meal requirements and food restrictions may be noted on the contract.
  • The parents/guardians entering into this contract order meal service for their child on each day of operation. 
  • If the child is not to eat on a particular day (ex. due to sickness or vacation), it is the responsibility of the parents to cancel the order on that day.
