HUNGRY diners tucked into meat with all the trimmings last week as part of a national day celebrating the great British roast.

Students and guests at St Wilfrid’s Catholic High School in Featherstone took part in their third National Roast Dinner Day to get youngsters thinking about healthy food.

Catering manager Babs Askham and her canteen team served up roast pork and turkey, with roast potatoes and mash, carrots, cauliflower and Yorkshire pudding, with crumble or fruit salad for dessert.

Mrs Askham said: “It was really good and I think it might have been busier this year than last, it felt a bit like Christmas dinner actually.

“Everybody said it was great and it makes students more aware of what we use here every day – fresh and organic fruit and vegetables and meat from local butchers.”

The day is part of the Food for Life Partnership’s campaign to raise awareness of serving healthy school meals, and the school kitchen already has a silver award from the group for its commitment to dishing up organic ingredients.
