What's your message for David Cameron?
They spoke out on behalf of the 1.2 million school children living in poverty in this country who don’t get free school meals. Like us, they wanted to tell Mr Cameron that this is a crucial entitlement for our poorest children, so that every child gets the support they need to grow and thrive.
More than 400 Greenbelt festival-goers joined our Fair and Square campaign photo petition. Many wore dinner lady outfits, brandished ladles and spoke passionately about the difference free school meals can make.
Some of the most vocal supporters were teachers and doctors, who know first-hand the health and educational benefits free school meals have. Our recent survey found 98% of teachers think free school meals should be available to all children living in poverty.

We collected all the photo messages into a photo mosaic which we plan to send to David Cameron.
