Who is King Will catering?
Nicole Kingston and Jo Williams are two local mums; they are friends and business partners. They came up with the idea of providing healthier meals to schools to be able to work around their families and to give back to the community. Catering for schools has given them a perfect balance. They can run their own business during school hours and still be there for their kids before and after school. They recently won a Hobsons Bay Food Safety award for their catering business. They are looking forward to being part of the Newport Lakes School community and are happy to answer any questions as term 4 approaches.
What kind of food will be offered?
There will be a range of options, all made by Jo and Nicole, which will include hot food, such as fried rice and spaghetti bolognaise, sandwiches, rolls and home-made scrolls, vegetables and fruit and other healthy snacks.

Previous to this we coordinated our schools Fete and fundraising for two years. We were then asked to take on Newport Power Junior Football Clubs canteen, we did this for two years running then picked up again this year.
Nicole has a nursing background, began her food career in Thermomix five years ago and retired as a Team Manager when King Will Catering began. Nicole has two boys who love sport. Nicole is a dedicated part of Newport Power Junior Football Club and loves the Bulldogs.
Jo is old school hospitality, many moons ago ran a restaurant in a five star hotel. Then worked as a
Reflexologist and in disabilities while her four daughters were young. Four girls with different sport interests keeps me pretty busy.
How long has King Will be operating for?
Our business has been in operation for 18 months now. We started with Sacred Heart Primary in Newport, picked up St Margaret Mary’s in Spotswood and more recently Altona North Primary School. Newport Lakes will be our biggest school to date, we and our staff look forward to the challenge. We are affectionately known as the Canteen ladies and answer to each others names.
