The closure of the Sánchez Bacallado catering company left the future of the 50 schools and some nurseries that used their services up in the air.
Department representatives met with school leaders yesterday morning to sort out a solution to the problems caused by the closure of the subcontracted company and many school boards have already sought alternatives.
If you want your children to take a packed lunch, or “tupper” as it is known here, instead of paying for a meal provided by the school canteen , then the Minister has assured that the Canary Islands will not be charging a “table tax”.
Children in some Autonomous communities such as Catalonia and Madrid will have to pay to take their Tupperware lunch to school.
That decision, taken to boost funds after cuts to school budgets, and which has caused a stir across Spain, will not be implemented in the Canary Islands.
