School fees at the International School of Trieste include lunch for all students as well as snacks for children in the Early Childhood. The food is prepared daily in the school kitchen by a chef and a team of five assistants.


An alternative to the daily menu is always available for vegans/vegetarians and students who have allergies or specific dietary requirements. Any requirements must be confirmed in writing to the Office who will inform kitchen staff and teachers, where relevant.


Pedevilla is the catering company for the 2023/2024 school year.


Over the course of the year, the kitchen also prepares traditional ethnic and regional menus in conjunction with international festivals (Chinese New Year, Halloween, Easter, etc.).
