At HMP Altcourse the catering is provided by Aramark, one of the largest service management organisations in the world.

The catering department is required to provide meals 3 times daily for prisoners and lunch and hospitality in the staff restaurant 7 days a week. The menu rotates on a four weekly basis and caters for all dietary, ethnic and healthy options needs including special diets as prescribed by the prison doctor. Food is ordered via a weekly pre-select system and delivered to the units by a hot trolley system.
