Here in the UK thousands of children are eligible for free school meals if they are from a low-income family. It’s the UK’s way of making sure kids have at least one decent hot meal a day so they don’t go hungry if their parents can’t afford to put much food on the table. While that’s great during school times, it’s not so great for those children during the school holidays. England and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has launched a campaign to keep feeding vulnerable children during the school holidays in light of the UK government not funding it themselves. Marcus has asked as many food outlets as possible to get involved to make sure UK children don’t go hungry during the school break and in true British style, many UK restaurants have come forward to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Below is a list of various London eateries taking part in giving out free school meals. Each has their own terms and conditions so I’ve linked their names to their pages so you have all the information you need. Also, if you keep scrolling there’s a list of London councils who are participating and how they pledge to help the problem in each of those areas.
On behalf of myself and all of those children, this will help, thank you Marcus Rashford and thank you for reading and sharing.
If you don’t see any restaurants near you on that list, don’t worry. 24 councils in London have put themselves forward to take part in the free school meals pledge. Find your borough below and click the name of the council for more information on what they are doing and how you can claim.
