********ATTENTION PARENTS********FRIDAY 8th DECEMBER********

All Winters Flat students will be at CSC. We will still be taking orders for Friday.

We will coordinate with Winters Flat staff in the morning and deliver the lunch orders to the students from our canteen at CSC.

Dear Parents and Staff,

It is with regret that we need to inform you that Growing Abundance Project will not be operating the Canteen at the Castlemaine Secondary College in 2018 and this will mean we will be unable to provide the School Lunch service to your school.

We at Growing Abundance have been committed to providing and fostering a culture of high quality nutritious food, made in house with local produce and love, to  Mount Alexander Shire schools. We’d like to thank you for your support of this vision through the School Lunch program. 

We have been supported in realising the GA vision in many ways by CSC along with the generosity of private donors and the many volunteers from the broad school community, for which we are extremely grateful. 

Growing Abundance remains committed to our vision of ‘Local Food, No Waste’ and to contributing to a growing local food system for our children’s future. Our flagship Harvest program will continue to provide surplus local produce to the schools of our Shire and we are committed to supporting the provision of nutritious food of our young people. 

If you would like to speak to us further, you are welcome to contact Canteen Manager Mary Macintyre ( or our Committee of Management Chair Janet Phillips (
