Student hunger to help those in need
METHODIST Ladies’ College students have joined a collective of Perth school students involved in the 5000 Meals Project.
A group of teachers founded the community project in 2013 to help those in need by producing nutritious meals using surplus and donated fresh produce.
Top WA chefs and apprentices are also involved in the project.
Bib and Tucker and May Street Larder head chef Scott Bridger taught home economics students from MLC how to prepare lupin vegetable patties, and apple, rhubarb and lupin crumble earlier this year.
MLC students will teach the recipes to home economics students from participating schools next year as part of the project.
The recipes will be prepared by more than 30 schools as part of the project next year.
WA is the world’s largest producer and exporter of lupins.
MLC home economics students Evelyn Tay and Isobel Long work with May Street Larder and Bib & Tucker executive chef Scott Bridger.
