Green MSP Welcomes UK’S First “Slow Food” School Lunch

Robin Harper, Green MSP for Lothians, will visit North Berwick High School tomorrow morning, Thursday 27th September at 10am to meet with pupils, teachers and two of East Lothian’ s leading chefs, who, as part of the East Lothian Food Festival, are preparing a 3 course “Slow Food” lunch for the pupils.

Robin Harper said

“The Slow Food movement is growing in this country. In countries with a great food culture, such as France and Italy, ‘slow food’ is a real part of the culture. People make time for proper meals, and don’t constantly snack ‘on the hoof’. The benefits to health, personal and social well-being, and relationships are well-documented. Slow Food is sustainable food, eating locally produced produce where possible, reducing food miles and promoting local businesses. It’s great to see young people being given the opportunity to get involved in the experience of slow food.”

The lunch will be created wherever possible, from locally sourced produce, and will be served to pupils by sixth year students.
