New stretch target

Any extra money we raise will go directly to Aylesbury food charities and food banks.

If this project is a success then we will raise money to cover Christmas meals for local people.

We were very disappointed that free school meals were not extended to cover the October half term holidays.

We decided to step up and offer free pizza for any kid during the holidays. No strings attached, just kids getting pizza.

We're blown away by the number of people who have since approached us wanting to help, so we have set up this crowdfunder. All money raised will go directly to funding meals. We will put some towards pizza ingredients which we buy through a wholesaler. It costs about £2 for the ingredients for a child's pizza. There are about 7000 kids in Aylesbury Vale in relative poverty according to the End Child Poverty coalition and the levels of poverty are rising due to the corona virus crisis.

Any funds that are left over will go to local projects that feed the homeless and to local food banks.
