I met two ladies from Mary's Meals who told me children have to walk for 2 hours to get to their school every day. I couldn't walk that far every day. The kitchens start cooking early in the morning so that all the children get fed so thanks again for your support!
Today's meal was delicious. It was a beef burger, roast potatoes and peas. I didn't want any salad today. The roast potatoes were soft. The ice lolly for dessert comes in orange, yellow, purple and green. I got given purple. It has two sticks because it's easier to hold that way.
Mouthfuls- 32 not including licks.

I got this fantastic email from Australia,
'We are from a school in Australia (in Nowra – on the south coast of New South Wales, 21 seconds!).
We found out about your blog from one of our teachers who is from Scotland, like you! How cool is that??!! At school in Australia most kids have to bring their lunch from home. Some schools have a canteen where students can buy their lunch, but our school is too small to have a canteen. So we do cooking every second Wednesday instead.
Today was cooking day and we cooked Salmon Fish Cakes with Garlic Mayonnaise and Lemon. It was DELICIOUS!
Here are our scores (We have averaged our scores for the whole school, the serving was 2 fish cakes each):
Healthy Rating: 8.5/10
Price: AU$1.25 (BUT we used lemons from Mrs M’s lemon tree and an egg from the school chickens)
Pieces of Hair: 0 (thank goodness!)
We think your blog is great, and we love how you raise money for kids in Africa. We pay for our cooked lunch ($2 each) and we are using it to raise money for a clean water well in Cambodia (through Samaritan’s Purse).

I'd would really enjoy eating your homemade fishcakes. It's great you get to cook. We sometimes do too. It's so cool you have school chickens!
