TWENTY-SIX people attended the National Meals on Wheels Day luncheon hosted by the Tumby Bay branch on Tuesday, August 28 at the Tumby Bay Area School home economics centre.

The menu was capably planned, costed, ingredients ordered, meal prepared and served by the school’s year 11 food and hospitality students, Brooke Stratford, Kirra Lawrie and Maleah Higgins, who recieved some assistance from year 12 students, who had provided the catering for the luncheon in 2017.

The menu consisted of a choice of two soups followed by homemade lasagne or homemade creamy garlic carbonara served with salad.

Sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce or apple tarte tatin served with home made icecream completed the meal.

A presentation to the students was made by Bernie Newton.

He said the people of Tumby Bay were lucky to have Meals on Wheels provided to them, volunteers to deliver them, and certainly lucky to have students who were learning to cook, so the branch could enjoy a beautifully presented and tasty meal. 

Branch president Eileen Weiss spoke on behalf of the committee and presented a certificate of thanks from Meals on Wheels to the students.
