Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - FRONT PAGE -

FAM­I­LIES feasted on lo­cally-grown food at the Mid­dles­brough Town Meal.

The an­nual event fed thou­sands of hun­gry vis­i­tors for its tenth year with a va­ri­ety of fresh food in Cen­tre Square.

Start­ing at mid­day on Satur­day, the cen­tre­piece of the oc­ca­sion was a hot meal cooked by cater­ing stu­dents from Trin­ity School. This year’s menu in­cluded leek and potato soup, pasta dishes and the Mid­dles­brough town crum­ble.

And it wasn’t just about great food – there was also a host of fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties with en­ter­tain­ment in­clud­ing pony rid­ing, a pro­duce con­test, chef demon­stra­tions and vin­tage bus rides.

The Town Meal is a cel­e­bra­tion of the grow­ing projects that have run through­out the year, with com­mu­nity groups and fam­i­lies reap­ing the re­wards of grow­ing their own fruit and veg­eta­bles.
