End Child Food Poverty

October 24, 2020 11:48 AM

Following the Conservative governments refusal to extend free school meals for those in hardship a number of local businesses have stepped into the breach and are offering free food to those that qualify. This is a fantastic initiative by those involved, please see below. The list may not be totally comprehensive, so if you know of any businesses doing this that we have missed, please let us know.

Marcus Rashford should be congratulated for his continuing campaign. Let's hope it is enough to shame this government into taking action. Local businesses should not have to cover for government failings.
