STUDENTS learnt how to make health ‘takeaway’ meals when Foodbank WA representatives visited Merriwa Primary School this month.

Foodbank hosts Claire Celenza and Reeanna Morgan brought equipment and ingredients to teach Year 4 classes how to prepare meals during the Food Sensations sessions on November 1.

“Students each receive a recipe booklet to take home, so they can continue making healthy meals and snacks at home,” principal Sue Waterhouse said.

“As part of our health and wellbeing program at Merriwa, we encourage programs such as Foodbank Food Sensations, breakfast club, crunch ‘n‘ sip and waste free Wednesdays, featuring our Waste Free Warrior.”

Foodbank WA provided more than 6.1 million meals to people in need in 2017-18 as well as running healthy education and school breakfast programs.
