A COMMITMENT to healthy food and good hygiene has netted the Scholes Lunch Club a top award.
The Scholes Lunch Club, which meets every Monday, has been awarded a gold star rating in Kirklees Council’s Healthy Choice scheme.
During its weekly luncheons, food is prepared and served to the members by offenders carrying out court-ordered Community Payback.
Chairman of the management committee and luncheon organiser Margaret Webster was presented with the award by Vicki Walker, from Kirklees Council.
She said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the Healthy Choice Gold Award as it recognises the commitment shown by the offenders working here to practice good standards of food hygiene and cooking.
“Many of the older people who attend the lunch club are unable to get out of home alone. We provide transport, enabling people to come along and take part in a social activity and have lunch with friends.”
