Quorn Celebrates National School Meals Week

Quorn Foodservice recently partnered with SIPS Catering to treat pupils at Crocketts Community Primary School in Sandwell to a series of interactive sessions in celebration of National School Meals Week (NSMW).

With the help of Quorn Superheroes, Hope and Max, the children and school staff enjoyed hands-on activities, including cookery demonstrations, tastings, and educational talks on the health benefits of Quorn for both them and the planet.

Phil Thornborrow, head of foodservice at Quorn, said: “There are a whole host of benefits to be gained from offering meat free options on school menus and, with many schools now serving Quorn, there’s never been a better time to review menus and drive positive change.

“These sessions play a vital role in educating children on the importance of sustainable nutrition as well as the value of protein as part of a varied and balanced diet.”

The school also went meat free for the day, which equates to a saving of enough carbon to fly from Birmingham to Paris 16 times, and enough water to last one person for 10 years.

Pupils were also given the chance to win £500 of sports equipment for their school as part of a ‘Create Your Own Superhero’ competition.

Lynne Paino, Headteacher at Crocketts Community School, said: “The pupils thoroughly enjoyed hearing all about just how fun food can be. Through a stimulating learning environment – and with the guidance of SIPS and Quorn – the children have gained so much insight into how healthy food can help them to reach their full potential and benefit the planet at the same time.”
