A Longford-based company is hoping new government schemes can help it significantly expand its local workforce.

Last month the Minister for Social Protection Heather Humphreys confirmed that the Hot School Meals Programme is to be extended to an additional 189 primary schools.

The additional €5.5 million for the extension of the Hot School Meals will see over 35,000 children benefit from the service, who until now had only access to cold lunches.

Freshtoday, which is based at the Royal Canal Business Park in Longford, will be the key hub for the preparation and delivery of the meals and it's hoped the expansion will allow for further job opportunities later this year.

The company, established by Ray and Richie Nangle over a decade ago, also has a base in Wicklow

Richie has been speaking to Kevin McGillicuddy about the expansion of the hot schools' meals and its positive impact on operations in Longford:
