To win Free School Meals For All, we need a massive groundswell of support. To do that, we’re first asking everyone to sign our open letter urging the Prime Minister to extend Free School Meals.
Once you’ve signed the letter, you can:
Giving all children a free school meal removes stigma and ensures no child falls through the safety net. It has been proven hunger and anxiety around poverty impacts on ability to learn. Give all children the best chances in life they can have.
One hot meal a day makes a huge difference. The government must design a plan to put actual money into feeding primary school children instead of passing the burden on to schools whose budgets have not been enough for too long.
My husband and I both work, we have 2 children and have to make ourselves afford school meals every week. The rising cost of utility bills, fuel for my husband's commute to work and the soaring cost of food means something has to give if we are going to be able to give our children a healthy cooked meal.
