Food, Glorious Food
Last Thursday was ‘International School Meals Day’. It is sometimes easy to forget how fortunate we are to have such lovely meals, cooked for our children, by a great team. Also, to appreciate that, by September, all children in Welsh primary schools will receive these meals for free. As you as parents/carers will know full well, it’s not always easy to persuade our children to eat a wide variety of foods and to clear their plates but the kitchen staff and lunchtime supervisors work really hard to encourage pupils to eat well.
Continuing the cookery theme, next Tuesday ‘Can Cook, Well Fed’ will be starting a series of slow cooking workshops with a group of parents. We are delighted to participate in this initiative and hope it is a great success.
For anyone struggling to put meals on the table, St Joseph’s Church continues to offer their ‘Food Hub’ on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am and 12.30pm, or by appointment (email firstname.lastname@example.org). Donations of food, Slow Cookers, electric blankets and hot water bottles are gratefully accepted.
Finally, why not help cut food waste by visiting the ‘Zero Waste Fridge’ in St Joseph’s Community Centre on Thursdays (11am-12.30pm) and Fridays (9.30am-12 noon)?
