Welcome for Minister's comments on pubs and school dinners


Commenting on strong support from Pubs Minister Brandon Lewis MP, for pubs to provide school dinners reported in today’s Daily Telegraph, BBPA Chief Executive Brigid Simmonds said:

“It’s a great idea, as schools and pubs are both vital to local communities; there must be hundreds, if not thousands of places where this would work well, so schools currently struggling with their school meals certainly should be exploring the possibilities.

“And once again, it is great to see Brandon Lewis championing pubs and the really vital role they play.

“We need to learn from where this works well, and also encourage flexible local authority catering contracts, to enable schools to enter this relationship.”


Community, Pubs
