Fonterra Milk For schools has just started its roll out in Taranaki with more than 35 of the eligible schools signed up. The community welcomed the programme with a convoy of Fonterra tankers and tractors through Hawera, where local businesses participated in a Fonterra Milk for Schools window dressing competition. 23 children from nine schools also visited a farm earlier in the morning, where they learned about where their milk comes from.
Fonterra’s Director of Sustainability and Social Responsibility, Carly Robinson, said it was great to see the community support the programme.
“Fonterra Milk for Schools is all about sharing what we do best – great dairy and great nutrition in a way that will make a lasting difference to our children and the communities we work in.
“But, of course, it all comes down to the work of our Fonterra farmers, their communities and the schools. Their support has allowed us to bring Fonterra Milk for Schools to the Taranaki.”
South Taranaki Mayor Ross Dunlop, Taranaki rugby player Shane Cleaver and their mascot Ferdy joined in the celebrations and attended a community celebration hosted by Hawera Primary School.
Hawera Primary School Principal, Neryda Sullivan, said it was a great to see the community supporting the health and wellbeing of Taranaki’s school children.
