The Mayor and Mayoress of Rochdale joined pupils at Spotland Primary School for a Mexican style school dinner, as part of a national event celebrating school meals this week.
Spotland Primary School is one of 58 primary schools within the borough where the catering service is provided by Rochdale Council’s Facilities Management team.
As well as meals with a Mexican twist there will be Caribbean, Italian and Indian themed days held at Spotland Primary and many other schools across the borough.
The Mayor, Councillor Peter Rush, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the council’s catering staff to highlight some of the top quality, healthy and nutritious meals they serve to children across the borough. They are also showing that healthy meals don’t have to be boring - and a fun Mexican theme day is a great way to do this.”
The event forms part of National Schools Meals Week - a weeklong national initiative running from the 4 to 8 November organised by the Local Authorities Caters Association.
