Halal meat from unstunned animals will continue to be supplied to 27 Lancashire schools next term.
The county council has decided to suspend its ban on beef and lamb from animals which are not rendered unconscious before Islamic religious slaughter until its full meeting on October 18.
This will give all Lancashire's county councillors the chance to reconsider the authority's ban on halal meat from unstunned animals.
The county council's cabinet took a decision in July to provide only stunned halal meat, except poultry, to schools.
But the Lancashire Council of Mosques, which has a strict definition of halal meat as coming from only unstunned animals, objected and threatened to ask Muslim families across the county to boycott all school meals.
