Kia Aroha College creates its own school lunch scheme

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 5 November 2019

The government recently announced a school lunch scheme, where children in 30 primary and intermediate schools around the country receive a free lunch every day from term one next year.

But some schools miss out on the offer - like Kia Aroha College in Auckland.

It's a secondary school, so it doesn't qualify for the pilot scheme - but more than 90 percent of the school's students only regularly eat one meal per day.

So the school set up its own free lunch scheme - and it needs your help.

Principal Haley Milne joins us to discuss.
