Tubbercurry school among those on hot meals pilot project

Two schools in Sligo and Leitirm have been selected for the hot school meals pilot project.

The Holy Family National School in Tubbercurry and Mohill National School will get the service from September.

Each school will be expected to provide a menu choice of at least two different meals per day, plus a vegetarian/vegan choice and an option that caters for students.

Fine Gael Senator Frank Feighan says the benefits to the scheme have been seen in other schools.
