Make it Fair and Square: campaigning at Greenbelt festival (Video)
Free school meals are a vital support to help these children learn, grow and thrive. Yet 1.2 million children living in poverty in this country don’t currently receive them - 700,000 of these children aren’t entitled to free school meals as their parents work.
That’s why hundreds of festival-goers joined our Fair and Square campaign for free school meals for all children living in poverty.
As Paula Gooder, Theologian in Residence at the Bible Society, says in the video, if we can all get behind this important movement it will change the lives of children in this country who really need it.
If you haven’t already, please join the campaign today.
