The Ministry of Education has suggested that school canteens work under a take-away regime, in order to guarantee that there are no gatherings of people in the areas originally created to enjoy meals at school.

The president of the National Association of Public Schools and School Groupings, Filinto Lima, in a statement to Público newspaper, admits that continuing to serve meals at school canteens does not seem to be possible, “in such a small space and taking into consideration the high number of students, we will have to implement the take-away system”.

In order to guarantee that all meals are not served in the same space, Filinto Lima, suggests that other common areas will be used for this purpose as well.

In kindergartens, children “can have their meals in the classrooms”, he admitted.
