The Government has issued updated guidance to help schools operate the School Meals Programme amid the extended Covid-
This is a scheme which has been running in St Patrick’s NS for the past few years and has been offered to all pupils. Each pupil has received a daily snack comprising of a piece of fruit/ rice cake/popcorn or juice/raisins.
Through the School Meals fund, we now have the capacity to help those who need support in providing food for their family in these unprecedented times.
St Patrick’s NS will liaise with local organisations in a bid to distribute these provisions to families efficiently and effectively.
Contact for Programme
If your family would like support for food provisions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will be dealt with confidentially.
