Montrose Bay High School students and teachers have celebrated a 10-year relationship with Tasmanian not-for-profit Loaves and Fishes, serving up 100,000 meals for people in need.

Loaves and Fishes, which was previously known as SecondBite, has been preparing and delivering meals for emergency food relief across the state for more than 15 years.

Montrose Bay High School principal Tim Nicholas said the program had given students a purpose during cooking classes and actively engaged them with the benefits of their work.

“We have a had a great working partnership with Loaves and Fishes over the past decade which has helped our students grow and have a positive impact on their community,” he said.

“These cooking classes have been an amazing asset for our students’ development as they engage all year levels and equip them with practical skills.

“We are planning to build on our school garden which will enhance the recourses available for our kitchen.

“I have to thank all our food studies teachers. Their steady hand has allowed this part of our school’s curriculum to flourish and support the wider community.”

Loaves and Fishes community partnerships manager Paul O’Rourke said it was great to see the students working hard for the benefit of people less fortunate.

“Loaves and Fishes is eternally grateful for the dedicated work of Montrose Bay High School’s students and educators,” he said.

“Preparing 100,000 meals is a remarkable achievement and we look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.”
