Shepherd Neame kids menu helps charity

A portion of kids’ meal sales will go to food charity FareShare.

Pub operator Shepherd Neame has launched a new children's menu, with a portion of its sales going to food charity FareShare.

The new 'Menu for Minis', now available across Shepherd Neame’s managed pubs and hotels, offers a selection of dishes designed for younger diners.

For every two course meal deal sold, the Faversham-based business will donate 50p to FareShare, its current charity of choice for this year.

FareShare is the UK’s biggest charity fighting hunger and food waste. It works with the industry to source food that might otherwise go to waste and distribute it to a network of 8,500 charities and community groups across the UK.

"We wanted to create a vibrant, fun menu which appeals to kids but is also well-balanced and delicious," says Shepherd Neame’s head of food Sang Nguyen. "As with all our menus, the dishes are influenced by the fantastic local, seasonal produce which we are lucky enough to have on offer here in the Garden of England. Everything on the menu is cooked to order using fresh ingredients by our skilled team of chefs."

What's on the menu

A range of children's favourites are on offer. Mains include Cheese and Tomato Pizza using Ashmore Farmhouse cheese from the Cheesemakers of Canterbury; and Battered Haddock and Chips with freshly caught fish. 

"We are delighted to unveil our new kids’ menu in time for the school summer holidays," says Shepherd Neame’s managing director of pubs Jonathon Swaine. "Sang and his team have worked really hard to put together a fantastic selection of dishes using great locally-sourced produce which we are sure will prove popular with our young diners.

"FareShare makes a real difference to families and individuals in need and we hope that in addition to raising funds, this initiative will help raise awareness of this fantastic charity."
