Help ensure free school meals for all children in poverty
For the past three weeks Sunday People has featured stories about families in poverty facing staggering financial difficulties, and the ways that free school meals for their children could make a big difference. Please have a read:
- Cruel dinners: Hundreds of thousands of children set to lose free school meals
- Hunger trap: 250,000 rise in children in poverty
This week, actress Tamzin Outhwaite voices her support for our campaign. She writes a great story about the importance of free school meals in her family, and her shock to learn that more than a million children in poverty do not receive these important meals.
