We care a great deal about our food at Olng’arua. Not only to we want to give our children a healthy and balanced diet but we like to support the local community at the same time.
After lunch the children always get a peice of fruit. Today that fruit is pawpaw and has been supplied by a local family who lives near a water source and are able to grow it. The sakuma (a lot like kale) that we eat with our rice and beans has also been supplied by another local family.
Each day at 10.30am the children get a cup of milk. The milk, usually cows milk, but sometimes camel milk, is brought each morning by children who come to the school. So not only do their children get a good diet at the school but many of the parents earn some money by supplying us with produce. A happy outcome for everbody.
