Providing food and support to families struggling during the school holidays.
There are approximately 170 non-school days a year where children receiving Free School Meals (FSM) cannot access this food. Having children at home means having to find more food, childcare and ways to entertain children, all of which costs money. This puts pressure on household budgets making it even harder to ensure that children and families are eating well. In an attempt to help families in this situation, during the summer holidays, we aim to provide weekly food parcels for families referred by local primary schools. The client will be issued with post-dated food vouchers by their school, and signposted to a local collection point.
