We have lots of wonderful multicultural food events coming up in the New Year 2019 – take a look at the dates below and see when you can join in!

Food for Life Diary Dates:

SNAG meeting with Overdale Infant and Junior school councils, parents and LTS Catering, Tuesday 22 January 2019, 10.30-11.25 in the Dining Hall. How can we make school meals even better? Help us develop new school menus and our dining environment. We would love to see you there. This is a school council and Parent Forum event. (Please see notes of the meeting in the document below).

Y5/6 Cookery Competition – this event is open to all Y5/6 pupils to design a healthy 2-course school meal, cook it and send off their entry to our new caterers, LTS Catering. Information leaflets and application forms have been sent out in January. Children may be invited to take part in the semi-finals in April or indeed the final cook-off in June 2019! Last year two of our Y6 pupils won the Leicester City Primary Chef of the Year 2018 – can we do it again?!
