Serving up success: Local Food Links crosses the border to supply school meals in Somerset!

Dorset based Local Food Links have crossed the border and are now serving their fantastic freshly prepared meals to children at Winsham Primary School, Somerset.

Local Food Links have been serving up delicious meals to school children in Dorset for over 10 years and are excited to begin serving their first school outside of the county.

As a social enterprise set up for community benefit,  Local Food Links has developed a model that enables small, rural schools without kitchens of their own to enjoy freshly prepared meals.  This service is ideal for Winsham Primary School who only have 35 children on the roll.

With a nutritious and varied menu including everything from Roast Dinners and Homemade Pizza to Stuffed Peppers and Chocolate Brownies, pupils at Winsham Primary are enjoying a tasty and varied lunch, prepared using locally sourced ingredients.

Interim Head Teacher Sandra Leggett said “The children are enjoying the new school hot meals provided by Local Food Links. They say they are ‘yummy!’”

Parents can relax too knowing the children have had a healthy lunch that keeps them well fuelled for an afternoon of learning. Local Food Links are focussed on providing meals that offer a genuinely healthy and well balanced alternative to packed lunches or processed meals.

Caroline Morgan – CEO at Local Food Links said “I am passionate about childhood nutrition and ensuring every child has the opportunity to have a healthy and enjoyable meal at school.  We are delighted to add Winsham to the 34 schools we already work with and are very excited to branch into Somerset!”
