Summary

Nationally, one in 7 children go to school without breakfast. For those children, a school lunch can be the only meal of the day. We know that local families struggle all year round and that the summer holidays puts huge pressure on their food budgets. That's why we'll be running our Feeding Families Appeal again in 2019.

Challenge

In 2018 we launched our first ever Feeding Families Appeal, to help families who are struggling financially to cope with the extra cost of feeding their children during the six week holidays. We provided those children with special weekly packs throughout the six week holidays, containing five days' worth of breakfasts, lunches, and snacks. We worked with 21 schools to provide 1,135 packs, and we supported almost 200 children each week of the summer holidays.

Solution

That's why our Feeding Families Appeal needs to be even bigger in 2019. We'll be working with 34 local schools to provide families in need of extra support with weekly packs for their children, to ensure they don't go hungry this summer. The only way we can achieve this is with your support. We're aiming to raise 15,000. Each Feeding Families pack costs 8 to produce. This provides a healthy breakfast and lunch including fresh fruit for each child.
