Nottingham City Council has won four new school catering contracts in Derby.
The council will provide catering at four Derby schools from April. These are Beaufort Community Primary, Cherry Tree Hill Primary, Asterdale Primary and Borrow Wood Primary.
The council currently provides meals across 55 primary and secondary schools in Nottinghamshire.
Councillor Neghat Khan said: "The key to the council's recent success is that the education catering team recognises the importance of working in partnership with each school to ensure individual needs are met and expectations are exceeded.
"Our highly experienced team are always prepared to go above and beyond - from reflecting the school's teaching programme in the menus and providing educational enrichment through clubs to running engaging cooking classes and supporting fundraising initiatives."
Jo Bunting, from Odyssey Collaborative Trust, said: "We felt that Nottingham City Council's emphasis on local fresh ingredients, quality meals for all with a flexibility of choice of menus to suit our children - including their halal offer - and commitment to meet 'Schools at Food for Life' silver standard from the start of contract, made them the perfect partner for us to continue developing our catering service."
