THE quality of school meals and hampers provided to Carlow children in need during the pandemic has “gone down dramatically”, according to a local councillor.
Cllr John Cassin said that that the VEC had been working with a local company last year to provide school meals, normally given in schools, but then delivered to homes when the schools closed.
However, cllr Cassin suggested this contract with a local company had ended and the quality of the meals and hampers provided had “gone down dramatically” as a result.
“What’s happening there, and can we find out as a matter of urgency?” asked cllr Cassin.
