    Hop on board for the CATERed Big Summer Food Tour

    Radio Plymouth's Jemma and Staff from CATERed - Plymouth’s new school meal provider - are not letting the school holidays stand in the way of being able to dish out healthy grub to children.

    Join us for the first ever Big Summer Food Tour to help make sure that some children, who would normally receive free school meals are not missing out during the long summer holiday.

    Providing extra meals during school holidays can be a real struggle for many families and there is evidence that the city’s food banks experience a peak in demand during the school holidays.

    Managing Director of CATERed , Brad Pearce said: “We know that for many families the summer holidays are a struggle with the children at home 24/7 and no free school meals, so the weekly budget has to stretch further for food and there is little left for activities and treats. We hope that our big summer food tour will at least help some parents who are may be struggling with the summer break by providing their children with our healthy nutritious lunch in bag.”

    The CATERed  team, will be dishing out the free lunches to children at the following locations and dates:

    Thursday 6 August – Mount Wise play area, Devonport
    Tuesday 11 August – Deans Cross play park 
    Thursday 13 August – Asda car park
    Tuesday 18 August – Honicknowle green
    Thursday 20 August – Kitt Hill Crescent Play Park, St Budeuax
    Tuesday 25 August – Yeo Close Play Park, Efford 
    Thursday 27 August – Tesco Transit Way

    Around 200 lunches will be given out per day on a first come first served basis so any families wishing who would like a free lunch for their children are urged to arrive early.
