AN ALLOA supermarket is donating 150 pizza making kits to schools in the Wee County to help fight holiday hunger across half term.

Colleagues in Morrisons supermarket's pizza counters are preparing 30 pizza kits per day which will then be distributed to local schools and community groups to help support families in need.

Alloa Morrisons' community champion Jayne Lindfield says the initiative is a great idea as it not only helps children in need but also helps with the boredom of lockdown.

She said: "I think it's great, it's helping them learn how to cook, it's a wee activity to do at home as well.

"They get the dough in the pack, they roll that out then put the pizza sauce on. There's pepperoni and ham or sweetcorn and peppers for vegetarians.

"Then they add the cheese and cook them.

"It's good that the kids can get in about it."

Primary school pupils at Fishcross, St Serfs, Clackmannan, Deerpark and Craigbank will be receiving the pizza making kits.

The 60,000 kits being given out across the UK also contain a recipe card with cooking instructions and details of a competition that families can enter to be in with the chance of winning £100 Morrisons vouchers.

Sian Ayling, head of Food To Go at Morrisons, added: "We want to ensure that as many children as possible have access to the food they need over the half term break, which is why we're offering these pizza kits to those who need them in our local communities and would encourage as many people as possible to get involved with our competition."
