HOT MEALS AND LOCAL EMPLOYMENT ON THE WAY WITH FRESHTODAY
We are very excited with the recent Government budget announcement to increase DEIS school meal funding by €5.5 million. DEIS Schools across the country, are now eligible to apply for an ‘upgrade’ from cold to hot school meals! Hot school meals are proven to assist school children in having better focus in the classroom as well as better overall learning outcomes. The coming school year will see an additional 35,000 children in receipt of a hot school meal.
Freshtoday will be hiring a local member of the com munity to oversee the distribution of lunches within each school, this supporting and enhancing local job creation.
We make the transition from cold to hot school meals, seamless with no additional work, efort or waste placed on the school. All of our Hot Meal packaging is 100% compostable and cater to a wide range of dietary requirements, such as vegan and vegetarian.
