Working in Partnership!!

At The Lantern Oer Lune Caf Bistro we set great store by using local suppliers and produce, but this year we have taken this a step further by working directly with the local Primary School, Thurnham Glasson C of E.
The children have their own vegetable gardens which are planted, cared for, and harvested by them. Pupils can take home the fruits of their labours and local residents also benefit but last year the Lantern Caf Bistro was also able to make use of some of this local grown produce in its menus, particularly apples for their winter fruit crumbles and fresh vegetables for our popular Friday evening Bistro.
Following discussions and consultation at the end of last year we agreed to fund the purchase of this years seeds to enable the school garden to grow crops specifically to compliment the Lanterns menu and in order to further support school funds the Caf Bistro will purchase these crops at harvest time.
The school have reported that the children are very excited to know that the fruit and vegetables they are growing will be used locally and we are equally delighted to be supporting the school and its children whilst having the benefit of knowing, and being able to tell our customers, exactly where the ingredients are coming from!
