Stu­dent hunger to help those in need

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

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.
