Press release from Tops Corfe Mullen Nursery.
With all the speculation in the media about the lack of support for parents accessing vouchers in place of free school meals, a Corfe Mullen Nursery is stepping up to give back to the community.
As part of their Autumnal activities, staff and children were set to make seasonal vegetable soup during their weekly Cooking School session. This activity sparked the idea of cooking a bit extra to help those in need.
Charlotte Richardson, Deputy Manager at Tops Corfe Mullen said “We are always looking out for ways to support the community whilst still providing a range of learning experiences for the children we care for. During our Halloween party, the children made vegetable soup to offer out to the local community.
All of the staff within our nursery have a food hygiene certificate and have received allergen training so we wanted to offer out a free portion of vegetable soup to families within the local area.”
The nursery ensured social distancing was maintained and had a structure for collecting the soup inclusive of Covid-related safety measures.
