Food growers taste success


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.
