School food support program

Hunter schools prepare meals to support DARA's Food Programs. We currently partner with four local high schools; St Francis Xavier's at Hamilton, St Pius X at Adamstown, St Paul's at Booragul and Cardiff High School.

Each school commits to a number of cooks each term. DARA provides recipes and ingredients, and students prepare more than 120 portions during their food tech class.

Over the past two years, 6,000 meals were prepared for our friends in need.

If your school is interested in joining the scheme, please contact DARA's Food Programs coordinator, Baden Ellis on (02) 4979 1339
