Free milk in 1000 schools

Matamata Chronicle - - Rural Delivery -

More than 1000 schools around New Zealand are now en­joy­ing the taste of dairy ev­ery school day thanks to Fon­terra’s Milk for Schools.

Fon­terra chief ex­ec­u­tive Theo Spier­ings said dur­ing the past five months there has been sig­nif­i­cant com­mu­nity sup­port for the na­tional roll­out.

‘‘Milk is one of the most nu­tri­tious foods there is and we want to do what we can to make sure Kiwi kids grow up drink­ing it ev­ery day,’’ said Mr Spier­ings.

‘‘By the end of the roll­out we will be de­liv­er­ing milk to more than 1300 schools.’’

It was thanks to the sup­port of farm­ers, schools and com­mu­ni­ties, he said.
