School caterers put their meals on wheels
Our friends at Sustain have published a new guide for councils, school caterers and partners who want to deliver meals to older and disabled adults during the Covid-19 outbreak.
They will be launching the report with a webinar next Tuesday 26 May from 2:30 - 4:00pm for local authorities, anyone in the school food catering or catering industry, and others interested in how to keep caterers afloat or to ensure older adults can receive nutritious meals during Covid-19 and beyond.
