School Holiday Hunger Top Up Vouchers
The Holiday Hunger scheme was born out of listening to feedback from local families about how they manage during the school holidays. For the past six years we have provided schools with Holiday Hunger vouchers for all those in receipt of free school meals and families on low income. For some families finding a hot meal per child per day throughout the six week summer holiday is financially impossible.
We will continue this scheme long after lockdown is over. Families will continue to bring the vouchers along to the Food Bank and receive ‘Top Up’ food, fresh fruit and vegetables and extras for the holidays. This is a lifeline for many and if it frees up a few pennies to take the children to the beach and buy them an ice cream, amazing!
