DARA's Food Programmes is supported by a number of Hunter schools who prepare meals. DARA currently partners with 4 local high schools; St Francis Xavier's Hamilton, St Pius X Adamstown, St Pauls Booragul and Cardiff High School.
Each school commits to a number of cooks each term. DARA provides recipes and ingredients and students prepare over 120 portions during their food tech class.
Last year, 5 high schools prepared over 3600 meals.
