Lunchtime Grace at Prescot Grammar School in the Sixties [Peter Jones]
In the school lunch room/kitchens, Grace was said before every lunch. On Fridays only, Grace was said in Latin, as follows,

"Benedic, Domine, nos et haec tua dona quae de tua largitate sumus sumpturi. Per Iesum Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen".

The English version used Monday to Thursday was the English version, something similar to,

"BLESS us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen".
