Mackay Tuckshop Network Meeting – Term 1 2020
- Meeting/Event Date: 17/Mar/2020
- Location: Mackay
Host: Mackay North State School.
A tuckshop network meeting is a group of tuckshop convenors or their volunteers from schools in the local area getting together once a term or a couple of times each year to share their ideas. They provide a great opportunity to interact with others who understand the issues faced in a tuckshop. Tuckshop convenors who attend network meetings gain much benefit from doing so. Each meeting usually begins with a kitchen tour by our host tuckshop convenor followed by discussions on a range of issues often including:
- Sharing of menus and recipes
- Budgeting and pricing menu items
- Smart Choices
- Current grants available
- Ideas for producing food quickly
- Stock control and minimising waste
- Handling special diets on a menu
- Recruiting volunteers
- Suppliers servicing the area
Tuckshop convenors, volunteers and parent body representatives are welcome to come along and there is no cost to attend. Members and guests are both welcome. Light refreshments will be available so please register so your tuckshop host can cater for you.
