Food for the Soul

Mansfield Soup Drive

The Respond Project involves local community members driving practical and positive changes from the ground up to assist with promoting the health and wellbeing of children and families.

 

Data collected in 2019, before the project began, showed approximately 11% of local boys and 12% of local girls are meeting the daily recommended serves of vegetables.

As such, a key goal of this group is to promote an increase in vegetable consumption among local children and from this the Soup for Schools project idea was born. An outline of the project is detailed below. 

Food technology students from Mansfield Secondary College will volunteer their time to make a large pot of soup each week (catering for 50 serves) for the duration of the cooler months in term 3, 2020. 

 

The soup will then be provided to primary school students to have as their lunch meal on a rotating rostered day. The schools will receive a different soup at each rotation, with each dish including an abundance of vegetables.

 

 

So, how does it work?

Providing the Soup

The soup will then be provided to primary school students to have as their lunch meal on a rotating rostered day. The schools will receive a different soup at each rotation, with each dish including an abundance of vegetables.

Soup Schedule

For example; MPS will receive the servings of soup in week 1, St Mary’s in week 2, and Jamieson and Merrijig PS in the third week; this schedule will be repeated for the duration of term 3. 

Recipe Cards

Recipe cards of the soups will be provided to the participating students and they will be encouraged to take them home and re-create the recipes with their families.
