3 million children in the UK will suffer from Holiday Hunger during the holidays.
Help us help them, today!
We are targeting children during the UK holiday seasons to ensure they don’t go hungry.
You can help feed children during the holidays from just £30
Our Holiday Hunger programme has been serving food, which include meat packs, non-perishable food items and frozen meals, to thousands of children across Yorkshire and Humberside, the Northwest, West Midlands, and East and West London, during the school holidays.
A government social outcomes report estimates that of the 4.6 million children that live in poverty only 1.3 million receive free school meals. With the loss of free school meals given out during term time, in addition to the extra childcare costs around the holidays, families already struggling with low budgets find it difficult to feed their children.
After Britain’s energy industry regulator confirmed an 80% rise in the consumer price cap from October 2022, we are expected to see the worst living standards across the UK since the 1950’s. Experts have also predicted that this will also result in an increase in avoidable deaths with families struggling to make ends meet.
No child should ever go hungry, please help us help those most vulnerable here in the UK.
