In the Wyre Forest, 19% of children live in poverty. School holidays are not just a break from the classroom. For many, they are also a break from hot meals.
For the thirteen weeks of school holidays this year, many pupils in the UK will not eat a hot meal each day. At school more than 1.2 million pupils who may otherwise go without are eligible to receive free school meals. Outside of term time though, free school meals are not available and many pupils are left without regular hot food.
At Simply Limitless we operate a Lunch Kitchen every school holiday to provide a free hot meal for children.
When is Make Lunch on?
Make Lunch will be on through the Summer holidays, more details to come!
